After curfew, protesters and tensions remain in Ferguson

About 150 protesters in Ferguson are ignoring the curfew and remaining in the streets — and the heavy rain — after midnight.

Some community leaders reportedly built a barricade between police and protesters to buy time and avoid conflict.

The remaining protesters want action taken against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. On a live stream, protesters could be heard chanting, "No justice, no curfew!"

Police warned some protesters may have guns.
