Gunfire erupts at Ferguson protest

Gunfire broke out during a protest in Ferguson, Missouri, on the second anniversary of Michael Brown’s death, disrupting what had been a peaceful gathering.
    
Witnesses told an Associated Press reporter Tuesday night that a car sped through a group of protesters who were blocking a street. They said the car struck a young man so hard that he flew into the air and his shoes were knocked off. As the car drove away, shots were fired.
    
Witness Sharon Cowan says the man appeared to be badly injured and was put into a private car to be taken to a hospital.
    
Ferguson spokesman Jeff Small said police responded to reports of gunfire but so far had found no evidence that anyone had been struck.
    
Demonstrators remained on the scene.
