FERGUSON, MO (KPLR/KTVI/CNN/RNN) - More protests were underway Wednesday in a St. Louis suburb where a police officer shot and killed a black teenager.
On Wednesday, among those arrested included two journalists at the nearby McDonald's, including a reporter from the Washington Post, and a news crew from Al Jazeera America was tear-gassed by police.
Witnesses say 18-year-old Michael Brown was unarmed and his hands were in the air when a so-far unnamed police officer shot him.
Police said Brown attacked the officer and tried to take his gun.
Over the weekend, unrest over the shooting turned into a violent demonstration, involving looting and vandalism. Police have since asked protesters to restrict their gatherings to daylight hours.

On Aug. 4, the first day Toledo's water was declared safe again, a major act of kindness was seen in a Maumee Kroger store. A  selfless act from a stranger spared one mom a big hassle and a lot of money. Jessica Wagner had her young children with her in line at register nine at Kroger when she realized her wallet was at home. "I sort of panicked," Wagner said. "I've never done that before." She turned to the cashier, Emily Gratcl, embarrassed. "[I said,] ‘I'm sorry. I live about 10 minutes down the road. I'm going to have to run home,'" Wagner recalled. The store was ready to hold her groceries, but another customer decided to "Pay it Forward." "The lady behind her just inched forward and swiped her card," Gratcl said. "And she was like, ‘It's OK. It's on me. I got this.'" "And I'm like, ‘No, no. I can't let you do that,'" Wagner said. The kind stranger not only saved Wagner the trouble of running home, she also saved her a significant amount of money. Her total for groceries was $93.
