Due to reports from law enforcement of gunshots fired into the sky the Federal Aviation Administration activated a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) over Ferguson, Missouri.

For safety reasons, only law enforcement aircraft are permitted to fly through this area.

Media aircraft are currently operating just above the TFR at 3,100 feet.

The TFR prevents approaches to Runways 29, 30-Left and 30-Right. Due to winds, commercial aircraft are unable to land on other runways. Departures are unaffected.

As of 11:30 p.m. Central Time, airlines reported ten inbound flights have diverted to other airports.

The TFR is three miles in diameter, up to 3,000 feet above sea level. It is in effect from 10:15 p.m. Central on November 24, to 4:15 a.m. Central November 25.
