Unrest erupted through the streets in Ferguson, Mo., as this weekend marked one year after Mike Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer. One man remains in critical condition after opening fire on officers late Sunday night. Officials say that the man approached officers in an unmarked van and began opening fire. The officers then returned fire from inside of the van, critically wounding the man. 

In addition, three officers total have been injured through the night's unrest in Ferguson. Police reports say that two officers were pepper sprayed by protesters and another officer was taken to the hospital after being hit in the face with a rock during the events of the night.
