FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- Police and about 200 protesters clashed again in Ferguson, Missouri after another tense day in the St. Louis suburb.

Several hundred people congregated on a busy Ferguson street Friday night as protests continued nearly a week after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.

It was peaceful until about midnight, when a large crowd broke into the convenience mart that Brown allegedly robbed the day he was killed.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson said some in the crowd began throwing rocks and other objects at police. Police used tear gas to disburse the crowd but no arrests were made.

One officer was hurt, but information on his injuries was not immediately available. No protesters were hurt.
