 uthorities in Ferguson, Missouri, say it wasn't curfew violations that prompted the use of smoke and tear gas.

Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says the response was prompted by a report of a man with a gun and a break-in at a business where people took positions on the roof.

Officers made several arrests and are still looking for a suspect who shot and critically wounded another person.

Most protesters obeyed the midnight to 5 a-m curfew, which was imposed Saturday in response to violence triggered a week ago when a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black teenager.
