St. Louis police chief says tear gas has been used to clear street.

( KTRS ) St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson says nine people have been arrested and officers have used tear gas to clear a street amid protests after an armed 18-year-old was fatally shot by police.

Chief Dotson reports, protesters who were blocking a street also threw glass bottles and bricks at officers. After the protesters ignored requests to clear the road, Dotson says an inert smoke was deployed. He says that had no effect, so police then used tear gas after giving warnings over a loudspeaker.

Authorities report a car was set on fire nearby and police are responding to reports of burglaries in the area.
