After the announcement, demonstrators gathered in the streets of Ferguson, where protests eventually turned violent. Cars and businesses were set on fire and police in riot gear used tear gas to disperse the crowds. 

On Sunday afternoon, five players for the St. Louis Rams took the field with a "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" pose that has been used by protestors in Ferguson.
