FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - Two St. Louis County Wal-Mart stores where police shooting protesters disrupted business earlier this week have removed ammunition from their shelves.

KMOV-TV (bit.ly/100Zzu5 ) reports that the Ferguson and Maplewood Wal-Marts took the precaution after Ferguson October protesters clashed with police at both locations Monday. Several arrests were made.

Protesters also targeted the Bridgeton Wal-Mart, but that store did not remove its ammunition in response.

A Wal-Mart spokesman cited concerns related to previous looting and violence after the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson.

More than a dozen stores were attacked the night after Brown’s death, including the Ferguson Wal-Mart.
