Police officers in riot gear stand in position as demonstrators protest the shooting death of Michael Brown, in Ferguson, MissouriBy Scott Malone and Ellen Wulfhorst FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - Police in riot gear ordered lingering demonstrators in Ferguson, Missouri, to disperse late on Tuesday, then charged into the crowd to make arrests as relative calm dissolved in an 11th night of protests over the fatal shooting of a black teenager. Protests in the town of 21,000, a predominantly African-American suburb of St. Louis, have been punctuated by looting, vandalism and clashes between demonstrators and police every night since Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, was killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. In the hours after darkness fell, protesters were notably fewer in number and more subdued than on previous nights. Onlookers milled about as civic activists, members of the clergy and even Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster mingled with demonstrators.
