Police have dispersed protesters from the streets of Ferguson after second night of demonstrations following a grand jury decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Tuesday was far calmer than the previous night, though officers did have to extinguish a police car that was set on fire and vandals managed to damage some additional storefronts.

Several arrests were made, but the protests did not approach the chaos of the previous night, which saw arson, looting and rioting in the streets.

Members of the National Guard — which tripled its numbers in the Ferguson region Tuesday — were far more visible and remained posted throughout the city after the protests ended.
