8.21.14: Calmer night in Ferguson
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities in Ferguson, Missouri say Wednesday’s crowds of protesters were much smaller than they’ve been, since the fatal shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old by a white police officer.
State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson says there were no fires and no shootings, and officers used no tear gas or mace.
Attorney General Eric Holder visited Ferguson Wednesday and met with federal officials investigating the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Holder also met with Brown’s parents.
