A man was reportedly shot in the leg during a Tuesday night protest in Ferguson, Missouri; the suspect was swiftly taken into custody; the incident occurred near the site where an unarmed black teen, Michael Brown, was shot dead by a police officer last summer.
A Tuesday night protest in Ferguson, Missouri, has left at least one person wounded. The suspect was quickly taken into custody; the protest took place near the site where an unarmed 18-year-old black teen, Michael Brown, was fatally shot by then-Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in August 2014, sparking weeks of unrest, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper.

It reported that it was not immediately clear if the shooting was linked to the Tuesday night protest which saw about 50 people gather and block traffic near the site of last year's tragedy. Witnesses said that people in a crowd allegedly hurled rocks at police officers.
Meanwhile, law enforcers have recovered a gun from the scene of the shooting, according to the newspaper, which quoted St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman as saying that his department responded to a request by Ferguson police "to provide extra manpower" in the city. He declined to elaborate.
The Ferguson shooting comes as the city of Baltimore remains under an all-night curfew, which was imposed after unrest left one person critically injured, 20 police officers hurt and more than 200 people arrested.
During these riots, which took place over the death of a man injured while in police custody, the National Guard was called out for the first time since 1968 to contain unrest in Baltimore.
