Reports that the anger and tension has grown significantly from the previous evening among the protesters over the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a police officer.

Groups of angry men were seen surrounding a tow truck driven by a white driver.  The group had started to open the door to the vehicle in an attempt to get to the driver.

The age of the protesters is said to be younger than the previous evening–chants of “Fuck the police!” are heard.  Cars and people continue to move into the area to support the protesters.
