FERGUSON, Missouri (CNN)– A day of peaceful vigils to mark the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s shooting death turned ugly Sunday night when two separate shooting incidents sent protesters running for cover and prompted police reinforcements.

At least one of the incidents was an officer-involved shooting that occurred when police came under heavy gunfire, according to police.

No officers were injured, but word circulated, along with a video, that another black man was shot, ratcheting up tension.

Elsewhere, several objects were thrown at police and some businesses were damaged, the St. Louis County Police Department said. At least two police cars were shot at.

    Brown wasn’t chosen for change he was chosen to show the world how dumb groups of people are. Just because your Black doesn’t mean you can rob and get away with it. Just because your Black doesn’t mean you can beat a white man because you want too. Maybe with all the Black men and women dieing at the hands of the ones we hire to protect. Means You Are The PROBLEM. Fix your community and your people.

    Can’t wait for tonight, gonna watch the pathetic thugs burn and loot their own community again on live television. Just proves the fact that they will never behave and will never be a productive society.

    I wish these jiggies would just give it a rest. Two whites were just shot on live tv by a black male and you didn’t see a single person protesting, looting, or robbing there community. I’m not racist but these people are just black trash that think just because of the color of there skin and the color of the skin of the guy that was shot they have the right to do whatever they want. And news flash the idiot was in the wrong.
