article imageLivestream video captured Sunday's Ferguson protests

By David Silverberg     Aug 17, 2014 in Crime
Ferguson - On Sunday night, Vice journalist Tim Pool is livestreamed video of the chaos in Ferguson, MO, minutes before the curfew descends on the embattled neighbourhood. Seven people have been arrested and one man has been reportedly shot.
As the second night of a midnight curfew deepened into darkness, police came out in force against protesters, firing tear gas and using high-pitched sound machines to urge residents to leave the streets.
Journalist Tim Pool, via the Livestream site, is bringing the conflict to the world with a video stream of the live action. He is relaying information on police announcements, locations of protesters, lootings, tear gas disbursements, gunshots and alleged journalist arrests.
Available in the video above, the livestream is conveying the harrowing action on the darkening streets of Ferguson, MO, the site of the shooting of Mike Brown by a police officer.
According to CNN, at least one protester has been struck by a rubber bullet shot by police. Seven have been arrested and one man has been shot. His identity and condition is unknown at the time.
CNN goes on to add: St. Louis County police said several protesters had thrown Molotov cocktails toward the officers before authorities shot tear gas toward them.
Protesters carried one sign that said: "Killer Cops; Don't shoot," and many held their hands up in the now-ubiquitous gesture associated with these protests.
The curfew from midnight to 5 a.m. for the city of Ferguson will remain in effect tonight.
UPDATE:
According to various Twitter feeds from St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporters, tear gas is flying as the curfew begins at midnight. Another tweeted "Looters hit Dellwood Market on Chambers."
