No Arrests in Latest Ferguson Protest

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County Police say no arrests were made after a group of protesters returned to West Florissant Avenue in Ferguson.

A statement from police spokesman Shawn McGuire says protesters demonstrated peacefully from around 8 p.m. Wednesday into early Thursday morning.

McGuire says protesters and officers talked throughout the night, and officers didn't have to wear the riot gear of the past several nights or remove protesters from the roadway. He says there were no reports of injuries, shots fired, burglaries or looting.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports several clergy members joined the small crowd of demonstrators.

It marked the second peaceful night in the St. Louis suburb after protests marking the anniversary of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown earlier in the week turned violent.
