Police in Ferguson, Missouri lobbed tear gas at protesters for a fourth night after the crowd became unruly. Dozens of people were out again to protest the shooting death of 18  year old Michael Brown.  

"We just said 'hands up don't shoot!' "

Earlier in the day, the police chief asked protesters to confine their demonstrations to daylight hours. They responded with peaceful marches.

But tensions still are running high.  On Wednesday police took two journalists  into custody  at a Ferguson McDonald's.

Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery videotaped the incident as it happened. Officers in SWAT gear told him and Huffington Post reporter Ryan Reilly to leave. 

"Evidently I wasn't moving quickly enough and both of us were arrested," Reilly says. Both were released. No charges were filed.

People in Ferguson still are demanding to know the identity of the officer who killed Brown on Saturday. Witnesses say the unarmed teen's hands were up when he was shot.
Officials so far are not releasing the officer's name.  

"We will interview and talk to anybody who had anything to say about this," says Robert McCulloch, the St. Louis County Prosecutor.

He said all evidence in the case will be presented  to a grand jury.

McCulloch also said there is no timetable set for the shooting investigation.
