(KTVI)- Law enforcement officers spent another night controlling protesters and media in Ferguson. They say no tear gas or mace was used and no shots were fired. However, six people were arrested. One officer was also hit with a bottle. The most tense moments came when two people supporting officer Darren Wilson showed up at the protest.

One of them had a sign and someone tried to snatch it away from her. Officer Wilson, who is white, shot Michael Brown to death during a confrontation after the Ferguson officer stopped Brown.

A Grand Jury is now considering charges. The shooting death of the unarmed black teen sparked nearly two weeks of large protests and even violence, but last night’s protest was relativley small.

The rain may have had an impact.
