MANCHESTER, Mo. - Dozens of people interrupted holiday shopping at major retail stores around the St. Louis area to speak out about a grand jury's decision not to indict the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown. The protests began Thanksgiving night and continued early Friday. Protesters spent a few minutes at each store, shouting inside. Officer in at least one store ordered them to leave. There was no immediate word of any arrests.

Johnetta Elzie, who had been tweeting and posting videos of the protests, said demonstrations occurred at a Wal-Mart and Target in Brentwood, two Wal-Marts in St. Charles and one Wal-Mart in Manchester. In the suburb of Ferguson, where Brown was shot on Aug. 9, there were no visible protests as the National Guard patrolled the area Thursday night.
