FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - A large, peaceful crowd gathered in suburban St. Louis to again protest a police officer’s fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager over the weekend.

A day after a night of rioting in Ferguson, roughly 250 people chanted “no justice, no peace” as they marched Monday to protest the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Protesters gathered near the area where riots broke out the night before, while others gathered in a police parking lot where officers in riot gear stood in a line. Police say a handful of people were taken into custody for not leaving when asked.

Brown died Saturday in what police described as a scuffle with an officer. It’s unclear whether Brown or another man was involved in the alleged altercation, but police have confirmed Brown was unarmed.
