FERGUSON, Mo. — Missouri Governor Jay Nixon says there will not be a curfew tonight in Ferguson, Missouri.

Early this morning, Nixon signed an order to have the National Guard protect the Unified Command Center after increasing numbers of people looting, throwing Molotov cocktails and shooting at police and crowds.

The curfew was instituted on Saturday, but looters and aggressors have mostly ignored it and tried to attack police.

Nixon said, “I join the people of Ferguson, and all Missourians, in strongly condemning the violent acts we saw last night, including the firing upon law enforcement officers, the shooting of a civilian, the throwing of Molotov cocktails, looting and a coordinated attempt to overrun the unified Command Center.”
