FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - At least two protesters are facing charges after a confrontation with police in Ferguson.

Demonstrators, some in masks, gathered at Ferguson Police headquarters Wednesday night and marched, eventually shutting down an intersection for several minutes. Police say demonstrators blocked an ambulance on an emergency run.

St. Louis County police made two arrests, including one man accused of assault on a law enforcement officer for grabbing an officer’s arm. It wasn’t clear if Ferguson police made additional arrests. Messages seeking comment from Ferguson authorities were not returned.

A KTVI-TV truck was damaged. A protester suffered a minor injury when her foot was struck by a vehicle.

Tensions remain high in Ferguson as a grand jury considers whether to charge Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
