While Baltimore had a less turbulent night, a few dozen demonstrators took to the streets in Ferguson, Missouri, where trash cans were set ablaze, rocks were thrown and at least two people were shot, according to local reports.

One person was shot in the leg on West Florissant Avenue, the scene of unrest last year following the police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, NBC affiliate KSDK reported.

Another person was reportedly shot in the neck on nearby Canfield Drive, where gunshots were fired throughout the night, according to St. Louis Alderman Antonio French, who tweeted from the scene.

“He got himself in the truck to the hospital,” French wrote of the victim. “Hopefully will be OK.”
