Seeing live coverage with tear gas shot at protesters.

Fox 2 has live-streaming available:


KMOV 4 also has live-streaming available:


I think it's the protesters near the Ferguson police station, but not sure as the audio is the president's statement.

Edited: news helicopter confirms tear gas at protesters near Ferguson pd. He said that there were people trying to shake/overturn a police car and break its windows. Helicopter footage showed people trying to overturn the car and the rear window broken out.


Helicopter crew says can't tell if smoke or tear gas

Nope, news crew says can catch whiff of tear gas smell
