Man shot, suspect in custody at Ferguson, Missouri protest

 A man was shot and wounded, and a suspect quickly taken into custody at a Tuesday night protest in Ferguson, Missouri, near the site where unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was shot dead by police last summer, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

The newspaper said it was unclear if the shooting was linked to the demonstration, where some 50 people gathered and intermittently blocked traffic near where white Ferguson officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown in August.

Reuters could not independently verify the report. Representatives for the Ferguson police department could not be immediately reached.

Brown's shooting, and subsequent police killings of unarmed black men, has sparked months of sometimes destructive protests against police violence, which have flared anew most recently in Baltimore where authorities have clashed with thousands protesting a black man's death in police custody.
