Demonstrations have been taking place nightly since last Saturday when Michael Brown, an 18-year-old from the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., was shot and killed by a St. Louis County Police officer. He was unarmed.

Sunday night, a peaceful protest turned violent as shootings, tear gas, and firebombs rocked the city.
