Protest relatively quiet in Ferguson despite officer Wilson supporters

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Things have been relatively quiet in Ferguson Wednesday night.  There was a little commotion when supporters of officer Darren Wilson were discovered marching side protesters on West Florissant. Police quickly moved in and removed the supporters taking them out of the area for their protection.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder toured West Florissant Wednesday afternoon after getting updates from federal and local officials on the Michael Brown investigation.

Holder also visited the St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley, meeting with students concerned about the Michael Brown shooting.

Another high-profile visitor stopped by the police command center in Ferguson, Missouri Speaker of the House Tim Jones made the rounds at the command post and on West Florissant Avenue.

So far calm is prevailing on West Florissant with a smaller number of protesters out on the street.

While no smoke bombs or tear gas has been used tonight, a budding journalist found several canister of smoke at the QuikTrip and turned them over to the National Guard at the police command post.
