Calm Returns After Second Night Of Unrest Over Black Teens’ Death

FERGUSON, Mo. (August 12, 2014) The streets of the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., were calm again Tuesday morning, after a second night of unrest stemming from death of an unarmed black teenager whom a police officer shot over the weekend.

Michael Brown was shot several times, authorities said.

A police spokesman says there were at least five arrests Monday night, but no reports of looting.

Nearly three dozen people were arrested after a candlelight vigil Sunday night, when crowds burned stores and vandalized vehicles.

At a forum in the city last night, national NAACP President Cornell William Brooks told those involved in the unrest that it doesn't take "courage" to "steal, to loot, to burn down your neighborhood."

On Monday, the FBI opened an investigation into the death.

Witnesses say Ferguson had his hands up when he was shot.
