(CNN) – At least two people were shot in separate incidents in Ferguson, Missouri, on late Tuesday and early Wednesday as hundreds of demonstrators gathered in support of protests in Baltimore.

“Police are having a difficult time investigating because of the rocks being thrown at them,” said Jeff Small, a spokesman for the city of Ferguson. “At this point police are not sure if the (shootings are) linked to the protest or not.”

St. Louis Alderman Antonio French posted video on his Twitter account. Multiple gunshots can be heard as people flee in panic.
