A fresh round of protests erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, on Sunday, March 12, following the release of new information about the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

Protesters gathered outside Ferguson Market & Liquor, one of the last locations where Brown was seen, in a new video, calling for justice for the 18-year-old shot dead by Ferguson police in August 2014. Shots were fired during the protest but no injuries were reported, according to the <a href="http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/ferguson-market-owner-disputes-new-michael-brown-documentary/article_8aa5908d-cb00-53c6-a833-c1672e471791.html" target="_blank">St. Louis Post-Dispatch</a>. Police arrested at least four people.

New footage, included in a <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/11/us/michael-brown-ferguson-police-shooting-video.html?_r=2" target="_blank">documentary</a>, emerged showing Brown in the Ferguson Market & Liquor store just hours before his death. Documentary filmmaker Jason Pollock claims Brown appeared to have traded a bag of marijuana for cigarillos, contrary to police statements that Brown was involved in a armed robbery at the store. This claim was denied by the store’s attorney, <a href="http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/ferguson-market-disputes-claims-as-new-michael-brown-documentary-prompts/article_fc382406-dbd5-5f53-aeda-4de3f2d5d31e.html" target="_blank">according to the St Louis Post-Dispatch</a>.
