FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Tear gas is in the air again in Ferguson, Missouri, where racial tensions have simmered since Saturday's fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer.

Heavily-armed officers responded with tear gas and smoke bombs after objects were thrown during an evening face-off.

Two reporters say they were handled roughly and arrested while at a McDonalds not far from the scene of Saturday's shooting. They were released without charges.
