Yesterday, it was reported that a memorial built for slain teenager Michael Brown burned down overnight in Ferguson, Mo. Brown, 18, was shot and killed by officer Darren Wilson last month. The memorial was rebuilt yesterday, but the incident has resulted in more protests in the St. Louis suburb. 

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, several small protests were held throughout the day, but the calm broke once a window to Beauty Towns was destroyed around 9 p.m. last night, and people were reportedly seen running from the store carrying goods. According to the Post-Dispatch, store manager Juan Santos said the window, which was destroyed during the initial protests, had just been replaced last week.

Police responded as the protests grew, and while none donned riot gear, some were seen wearing body cameras. Gunshots were heard, but it can't be confirmed that they were related to the break-in. 

A fire started outside of the Whistle Stop and Depot Museum just before 11:30 p.m. Though the manager was able to extinguish it, the bomb and arson team from St. Louis County was contacted after the smell of gasoline was detected. 

Around midnight, police started to clear the area, prompting members of the crowd to hurl bottles at them. At least three people were arrested during last night's confrontation.
