Hundreds of protestors in Ferguson, Missouri violated a state imposed curfew Saturday night, where seven people were arrested and one person was shot.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency in the St. Louis suburb where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a police officer last week.

The curfew comes after looting and several nights of violent clashes between protestors and police.

The man who was shot Saturday night is in critical condition.

Police have no information on the shooter, but they say there was a man with a handgun in the street and a police car was shot at.
