FERGUSON, Missouri (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The man in charge of keeping peace in Ferguson, Missouri has issued a warning to criminals he says are invading the demonstrations.

"I'm telling you we're gonna make this neighborhood whole, this community whole and we're going do it together. I am not going to let criminals come out here from across the country or live in this community define what we're going to do to make it right," said Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol.

Captain Ron Johnson spoke to the media Tuesday morning. He says overnight 31 people were arrested, some of them from New York and California.

Two people were also shot overnight and four officers were injured by thrown bottles.

Captain Johnson said at one point he heard officers screaming over the radio after coming under fire.

"We can't have this. Children lying in their beds and bullets through the air. It's like they say on the streets a bullet has no name. We do not want to lose another life in this community," said Capt. Johnson. "The nation is watching, we're going to solve this, and we're going to solve this together."

The captain is urging peaceful protestors to come out during the day in hopes of weeding out those criminals he says are determined to cause more damage.

Johson says they will protect peoples' right to speak.
