Witnesses said some protesters threw rocks at officers and briefly blocked the street. Cars were seen doing donuts along West Florissant.

News 4’s Matt Sczesny said shots were also fired at other times throughout the night. Fires were also set in the streets throughout the night but they appeared to be contained.

Around 1:40 Wednesday morning, a Mobil, located on West Florissant, was looted for the third time since the shooting of Michael Brown. At least five suspects have been arrested in connection with the looting, police said.
