CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — Clergy and others who blocked morning traffic in the St. Louis suburb where the Ferguson grand jury decision was announced have ended their protest without any apparent arrests being made.
About 100 demonstrators assembled in downtown Clayton, Missouri, shortly after sunrise Tuesday and spent several hours blocking intersections, singing spirituals and chanting. They also observed a 4½-minute moment of silence to mark the 4½ hours that Brown's body remained on the Ferguson street before it was removed.
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County police are investigating after a man's body was found inside a car in Ferguson, but it isn't immediately clear if the death is related to the unrest that followed the grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.
Police were called at 9 a.m. to a residential area, where a man was found dead inside a parked car. The victim's name has not been released.
Authorities are calling the death "suspicious," but have not determined if there is any connection to the violence that broke out last night.
After a St. Louis County grand jury decided not to press charges against Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for the August 9th killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown, St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch followed through on his promise to release a wide variety of testimony the grand jury used to make its decision.
