On Monday, crowds gathered in Ferguson, Missouri, for another night of protests against the death of an unarmed 18-year-old shot by police Saturday.

Police wore riot gear and fired tear gas into the crowd outside of the QuikTrip convenience store that was looted and burned Sunday night, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Two women also told the Post-Dispatch they had been shot by rubber bullets. Members of the media tweeted they were ordered to leave the area by police, and stragglers were told by police officers with bullhorns to go home immediately.
