FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police in Ferguson, Missouri aren't expected to say until later today how many arrests they made during last night's violent protests in the city near St. Louis.

Some in the crowd protesting the weekend fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen threw molotov cocktails and other objects at police.

Police responded with tear gas and smoke bombs. Hours earlier, Ferguson's police chief said race relations were a top priority.
