In addition to looting and property destruction on Sunday night, authorities allege that protesters have thrown rocks and bottles and fired shots at police helicopters.


In other Ferguson news, a lawyer for Dorian Johnson—the man who says he was with Brown when Brown was shot—says Johnson will meet with the FBI and prosecutors today.
