FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - The streets of the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, are calm again this morning, after a second night of unrest stemming from the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager over the weekend.

A police spokesman says there were at least five arrests last night, but no reports of looting.

Nearly three dozen people were arrested after a candlelight vigil Sunday night, when crowds burned stores and vandalized vehicles.

At a forum in the city last night, national NAACP President Cornell William Brooks told those involved in the unrest that it doesn't take "courage" to "steal, to loot, to burn down your neighborhood."
