Ferguson - Protesters have returned to Ferguson a day after looting, fires and gunfire broke out during demonstrations over the death of a black man who died of spinal injuries after his arrest by Baltimore police.

The St Louis Post-Dispatch reports several dozen people marched down West Florissant Avenue in the St Louis suburb on Wednesday night protesting the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

That same area was the site of numerous protests following the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed, by a white Ferguson police officer in August.
