The National Guard had been assigned on Monday to cover the local law enforcement's command center after it was targeted for a "coordinated, planned attack," Nixon's office said.

"The situation has greatly improved with fewer incidents of outside instigators interfering with peaceful protestors, and fewer acts of violence," Nixon's office said Thursday.
