Ferguson Photos: Walgreens Fire, Cop Cars on Fire, Dollar Tree Looted During Protests-Riots
A Walgreens in Ferguson, Missouri, was reportedly set on fire after protests erupted on Monday night. Interstate 44 was also reportedly shut down, a McDonald’s was looted, a Little Caesars was set on fire, and a Dollar Tree store was looted.
Photos uploaded to Twitter showed the store on fire with smoke pouring out of it.
The fire is likely linked to protests that were sparked after a grand jury issued a decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown.
It’s unclear if there were any injuries.
A Dollar Tree store was also looted, preliminary reports said.
The FAA issued a no-fly zone over St. Louis and Ferguson.
Meanwhile, Gov. Jay Nixon called in the National Guard.
