FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)-Protesters once again gathered after dark Tuesday following a St. Louis County grand jury's decision Monday not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. Streets were crowded with demonstrators in Ferguson and several other spots in the St. Louis region, including the Central West End and the Tower Grove neighborhoods.
A few demonstrators vandalized a police car and several businesses along S. Florrisant Rd. in Ferguson. There were at least 12 arrests. Protests in other parts of the city remained peaceful, but were closely monitored by police.
During the day on Tuesday, clean up began along West Florissant Road and other streets in Ferguson where looting and violence Monday night left a path of destruction. Clean up also began along S. Grand in south St. Louis, where a supportive protest march by many turned to vandalism by a few.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon called more National Guard troops to Ferguson and surrounding communities Tuesday. About 700 troops played a supporting role to local law enforcement on Monday. More than 2,000 Guard members were deployed in a more visual and active role Tuesday.
