It has been announced that St. Louis County will stay in a state of emergency for at least another night, giving the county police authority to continue to surveil the area.
The decision follows two nights of peaceful protests; St. Louis County police haven’t made arrests or reports of injuries on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
Protestors have largely been convening on West Florissant Avenue. Despite occasional traffic blocks and confrontations with the police, there was minimal conflict surrounding locals’ commemoration of Michael Brown’s death. Brown was killed by former Officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014.
Today, police released footage of Tyrone Harris, a Black teenage boy that pointed a gun at them on West Florissant Avenue Sunday evening. Harris was later and critically wounded from being shot by officials.
Harris is now facing four counts of assault on law enforcement, five counts of armed criminal action and one count of shooting at a vehicle.
His bond has been set for $250,000.
