Protests erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, last night following the decision by a grand jury to not indict police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in August.

Authorities published Wilson’s grand jury testimony and photos of his injuries following the decision.

About 25 buildings were set on fire in a wave of civil unrest, and CNN reports that several flames were still burning as of 6 a.m. ET on Tuesday.

After the crowd heard the prosecutor announcement of the grand jury’s decision via radio and phone, a portion of the crowd sprinted towards a barricade in front of the Ferguson police headquarters, according to the Washington Post.

The protesters hurled water bottles at the officers who blocked them with plastic shields. It wasn’t long before the scene turned to chaos as the protesters were divided by those demonstrating peacefully and others tuned to violence. Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets. Numerous businesses and buildings were destroyed or broken into, with some being looted. At least two police cars were burned.
