AR-15 rifle stolen from torched police car during Ferguson protest
An AR-15 rifle was stolen from a police car torched in Monday night's Ferguson unrest, St. Louis County police said. When a police car was torched in the evening, the rioters stole the powerful rifle from a rack it was stored in, Sgt. Brian Schellman told Wednesday. Around the same time, another police car was also set on fire. The rifle has yet to be located and it is the only weapon stolen in the protests that have riled the town of Ferguson, police said. Violent protests erupted on Monday night after Darren Wilson, the white police officer behind the shooting death of Michael Brown was not indicted by the grand jury.
