One week after the shooting death of Ferguson teen Michael Brown, the Missouri city saw a state-imposed curfew. Tear gas, arrests, and gunshots followed the 12 a.m. limit on August 16.
The Associated Press reported that police used smoke and tear gas to disperse protesters before arresting seven. An unknown gunman reportedly shot and critically injured one.

The police, in their press conference earlier said they WOULD NOT fire tear gas. They started off with it. A mess.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) August 17, 2014
