The curfew had been lifted and the Missouri National Guard came in, but violence still ensued last night in Ferguson. Two people were shot, reportedly not by the police, and 31 people were arrested.

NPR’s Elise Hu is in Ferguson and speaks to Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about the events last night and what might help keep the peace tonight.
