The Latest on Ferguson: Arrests made along West Florissant

( KTRS ) Police have made nine arrests in Ferguson after protesters blocked a traffic lane on West Florissant Avenue.

Officers with bullhorns directed protesters to clear the roadway, and others in riot gear forced people out of the street. Some demonstrators reportedly threw water bottles and other debris at the officers. There is one report of pepper spray being fired into a crowd, it isn’t immediately clear why the pepper spray was used.

Monday marked the fourth consecutive night of protests for the anniversary of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

A demonstration in the same location a night earlier was interrupted by gunfire.

St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger has declared a state of emergency, authorizing St. Louis police chief Jon Belmar to take control of police emergency management in and around Ferguson.
