JENNINGS, MO (KPLR) – As darkness fell upon the police command post at the Buzz Westfall Plaza in Jennings, an uneasy feeling is in the air. Businesses and residents both are tired of the waiting and want to move on.

The unified command post is alive with activity from Missouri State Troopers, National Guard troops, St. Louis city and county police. National Guard troops are protecting the command post, freeing up officers to deal with any possible unrest on West Florissant near and around the shooting scene at Canfield Green apartment complex.

Additional officers are also on hand at the Ferguson Police Department on Florissant Road.
