Anger spurred by the death of a black teenager at the hands of white police officer boiled over when protesters stormed into a Missouri convenience store--the same store that Michael Brown was accused of robbing.

Police face off with demonstrators in Ferguson, Mo., after the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- Police and about 200 protesters clashed again in Ferguson, Missouri late Friday after another tense day in the St. Louis suburb, a day that included authorities identifying the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9.

At the same news conference in which officer Darren Wilson was named, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson released documents alleging Brown stole a $48.99 box of cigars from the store.

About midnight, protesters broke into that store and threw objects at police. Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson says police used one canister of tear gas.
