VIDEO: Officers Use Tear Gas on Angry Crowd Protesting Missouri OIS

Monday night in Ferguson, Mo., near the site of an officer-involved shooting that killed a reportedly unarmed 18-year-old man, officers in riot gear lobbed tear gas at angry crowds. There were 15 arrests but no reports of looting.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said members of the crowd threw rocks at police and gunfire came from the crowd, so officers used tear gas and shot "beanbag rounds" meant to stun them. Jackson told USA Today that police blocked off the area where most of the looting and vandalism occurred the previous night out of concern that cars passing by might hit demonstrators in the street.
