Jay Nixon, the governor of Missouri, has declared a state of emergency in Ferguson, in response to violent protests following the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown.
There have been a series of protests and looting over the last week, after 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was unarmed, was shot and killed by a white police officer.
A curfew will be put in place starting at midnight and run until 5 am, according to Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson, who was appointed by the governor to oversee security in the suburban St. Louis community that was rocked by the shooting on 9th August.
