Transcript for Ferguson Curfew Leads to Confrontations Between Protesters, Police
And the situation in Ferguson, escalating overnight. New pictures are coming in. Just such scary scenes. See the police in full riot gear there. Explosions in the streets overnight. No evidence that things will calm down. The first day of school canceled again this morning. Steve osunsami has the latest. Good morning. Reporter: Good morning, George. I can still smell the tear gas in the air. It's been hours. National Guard is on its way. Things went from bad to worse when demonstrators approached this police command center behind me. Because of the unrest, businesses are closed, and school, supposed to start last week, has been canceled again this morning. Overnight, the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, looking like scenes from a revolution. Just hours before the second night of the mandatory curfew here. Shots being fired on officers. A number of molotov cocktails being hurled and then the law schools. Reporter: This time authorities put their foot down with a massive show of force. Armored vehicles and officers moving in, firing tear gas and smoke canisters into the air. Definitely tear gas. Reporter: The crowds went running, some of them threw the canisters of gas right back at the police along with rocks. Also overnight, our first insight into the shooting that started it all. Officer Darren Wilson ending the life of 18-year-old Michael brown. This diagram reveals the unarmed team was shot at least six times into the front of his body, twice in the head. One bullet, likely the last to hit him, entering the top of his skull, suggesting he was bent forward. According to the medical examiner, he was charging forward or giving up. This healing at a black church. Offering an apology to the brown family. I wear that uniform, and I should stand up here and say that I'm sorry. Reporter: The officer in this case has been forced to move from his home to a more secure place. The prosecutor here is under increasing pressure to get this case to a grand jury and decide whether there will be charges. George. A lot of people demanding answers. Steve, thanks very much.
