After being looted two times in the past year, the Ferguson Market and Liquor Store owners decided to take things into their own hands. Armed with shotguns and handguns, the employees stood at the front of the store to ensure that no one could enter. When shots rang out in the middle of a protest on West Florissant Ave., many people ran towards the market, but quickly dispersed when guns were drawn.
