Looting and unrest had broken out Sunday night following a candlelight vigil for 18-year-old Michael Brown, who police said was shot multiple times Saturday after being confronted by an officer in Ferguson, a suburb of 21,000 that’s nearly 70 percent black.

Witnesses have said Brown had his hands raised when he was shot by a police officer.
On Sunday night, two police officers were reported injured and 32 people were arrested during riots around West Florissant.
