Police are searching for more than two dozen suspects who looted a gas station near Ferguson, Missouri, following a grand jury's decision in November not to indict an officer in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. St. Louis County police released nine minutes of surveillance footage from the Phillips 66 gas station — about a mile from Ferguson's main business district — showing a man shattering a glass door and allowing others to stream in and out.
"From there, numerous suspects entered the business and burglarized it," St. Louis County police said in a statement. Police say they are looking for 28 suspects.
The gas station was one of more than two dozen businesses in the area set on fire, vandalized or burglarized during a night of unrest on Nov. 24. The fatal shooting of 18-year-old Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in August — and the grand jury's controversial decision not to indict the cop — stoked several nights of protests in Ferguson and across the country last year. Anyone with information about the gas station looting is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
