No arrests have been made in Ferguson, Missouri following a candlelight vigil as activists gathered Thursday night.

Two police officers were shot during a protest in the city in the early morning hours March 12, and a manhunt for the suspects continues today, March 13.

During Thursday's demonstrations, about 100 people rallied. No arrests were made at the demonstrations.

There is a $10,000 reward being offered for information that leads to the arrests of the suspects.

People have been demonstrating in Ferguson for about 200 days now. The unrest began after the Aug. 9, 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, who died after being shot by a white Ferguson police officer. Brown is black, and the protests and disorder were spurred by the belief the shooting was racially charged.

The U.S. Justice Department announced it would not charge Darren Wilson, the officer involved in the shooting. Wilson was previously cleared by a St. Louis grand jury.
