The Federal Aviation Administration has restricted air space above the Missouri town where protesters and police have clashed seen the police shooting of an African-American teen.
The Hill reported that the agency said it issued the order “to provide a safe environment for law enforcement activities.”
Police had said that shots were fired at a police helicopter on Monday, KMOZ reported. ThinkProgress reported that the restriction would prevent news helicopters from flying over the city.
The order is in effect until Monday.
