ST. LOUIS — Renewed unrest caused more property damage Tuesday night in Ferguson, Mo.

KTVI-TV reports that 100 to 150 demonstrators in support of Michael Brown gathered Tuesday around 9 p.m. when a store called Beauty Town was broken into. Windows were shattered and vandals reportedly tried to take the cash registered, but fled when police arrived.

Around 11:30 the demonstrators clashed with police when officers attempted to disperse the crowd. Demonstrators reportedly threw rocks at the officers. Shots were said to be fired, but no injuries were reported.

Another business, the Whistle Stop and Depot Museum on South Florissant Road, caught fire. The damage was restricted to the exterior of the building. Due to a strong smell of gasoline at that location, investigators believe the fire may have been intentionally started.
