Another night of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Police fired tear gas at rioters protesting the death of Michael Brown, the black teenager shot by police over the weekend. The violence continued, despite calls for calm from Brown's parents. SOUNDBITE: MICHAEL BROWN SENIOR AND LESLEY MCSPADDEN, VICTIM'S PARENTS, SAYING: "We don't want no violence. Michael wouldn't want no violence." Police in riot gear were out in force. In some instances, officers were being fired on. The renewed rioting comes after chaos broke out Sunday night when crowds looted shops, lit fires, and vandalized businesses. SOUNDBITE: MARCETA HARRIS, NAACP, SAYING: "We do not rob our cities. We do not do that. We have to use that gas station. We need that Walmart." Brown was shot to death during an altercation with police. The FBI and Justice Department have opened a probe into the racially charged case. Community members say they will not back down until justice is served.
