DELLWOOD, MO - MARCH 13: Crime scene tape remains in the rubble of a business that was destroyed during November rioting on March 13, 2015 in Dellwood, Missouri. The rioting broke out after residents learned that the police officer responsible for the killing of Michael Brown would not be charged with any crime. Few of the businesses destroyed in the rioting in Dellwood and nearby Ferguson have reopened. Two police officers were shot Wednesday while standing outside the Ferguson police station observing a protest. Ferguson has faced many violent protests since the August death of Michael Brown.
