FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - It was a calmer night in Ferguson, Missouri, which has seen days of protests marking the anniversary of the police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

About 100 protesters gathered along West Florissant Avenue Tuesday night, practically outnumbered by police in riot gear.

The St. Louis County Executive says the state of emergency could be lifted as soon as today.
