FERGUSON, MO (KSDK/CNN) - It's been two weeks since the death of American teen Michael Brown, shot by a police officer.

Crowds in Ferguson, MO have been smaller than seen.

Capt. Ron Johnson said they had to respond to fewer incidents Friday night, no fires, no shootings and they did not cease a single handgun.

There are fewer police, no tear gas and no Molotov cocktails.

Businesses have reopened and one vendor is selling shirts with the words:

"It's time to start the healing."

Police said they expect the calmness to continue, leading up to Monday morning, when the funeral of Michael Brown will be held.
