Fire department officials are leaving the scenes of multiple fires due to gunshots being fired.

UPDATE 12:00 AM EST

Gunshots and building fires have broken out in Ferguson Missouri after Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced that charges would not be brought against Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Browns parents have called for peaceful and constructive protests urging restraint in the wake of the announcement.

Many stores have been looted in Ferguson while car fires and building fires continue to burn.

Police in riot gear have used tear gas, bean bag guns and have mobilized in an attempt to stop the damage being caused by agitators.

Currently the “peaceful protests” in Ferguson are looking more like the 1992 Rodney King riots.

Hours ago, the prosecutor in the Ferguson Missouri shooting case of 18 year-old Michael Brown announced that the jury will not indict Officer Darren Wilson.

Robert McCulloch stated that many witnesses made incomplete statements that were easily refuted.

He continued to state that Darren Wilson’s account of what happened that day were consistent with recordings and multiple autopsy reports that were conducted.

The jury took two days to deliberate and found that there was no probable cause to indict Darren Wilson.

At the end of his announcement, Prosecutor McCulloch stated, “the evidence and testimony will be released following this statement.”
