National Guard Pulling Out Of Ferguson

(AP) - Officially, a state of emergency remains in effect in Ferguson, Missouri.

But, Governor Jay Nixon has given orders to the Missouri National Guard to leave town, saying, "I feel we're making progress."

Protests following the fatal shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old, Michael Brown, by a white police officer had gotten violent at times, but they've been fairly calm the last three nights.

About 100 protesters gathered on Ferguson's streets Thursday night, and there were only a handful of arrests.
