Police use tear gas on crowd outside St. Louis
(08-12 10:59)

Authorities in a St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black teen was fatally shot by police have used tear gas and rubber bullets to try to disperse a large crowd.
Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson says a group gathered throughout the day Monday at a burned-out convenience store turned rowdy at nightfall.
Jackson said members of the crowd threw rocks at police and gunfire came from the crowd. He says officers used tear gas and shot "beanbag rounds'' meant to stun them.
An Associated Press photographer said police were telling people to go home, but authorities had blocked exit streets off.
Looting and unrest broke out Sunday following a vigil for 18-year-old Michael Brown, who police said was shot multiple times Saturday after being confronted by an officer. --AP
