Three guns seized in latest rally over the police shooting of black teenager

Police said on Wednesday they arrested 47 people as tensions rose after an otherwise peaceful night of protests in Ferguson, the St. Louis suburb rocked by violence over the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager.

Three guns were seized in the latest protest rally in Ferguson, which has become ground zero of a new national debate on police treatment of minorities after Michael Brown, 18, was shot Aug 9 by a white police officer.
