FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — It was a second night of unrest in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, following the weekend shooting death of an unarmed black teen.

Monday night, police in riot gear fired tear gas into a crowd of protesters and made several arrests.

The night before, dozens of people were arrested as some people began looting and vandalizing businesses.

At a forum in the city last night, national NAACP President Cornell William Brooks told those involved in the unrest, "to steal, to loot, to burn down your neighborhood — this does not require courage."
