FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - There's an uneasy calm this morning, but last night it looked like a repeat of August, only worse, says the police chief of St. Louis County, Missouri.

After last night's announcement that a grand jury in Ferguson decided not to indict a white police officer for the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old, the chaos that occurred after the August shooting returned to the streets, with some protesters setting fire to buildings and cars and looting businesses.

The sound of gunshots temporarily prevented fire crews from fighting the flames.
