See It: Gunshots, Businesses Set Ablaze In Ferguson (Video)

Massive crowds in Ferguson, Missouri, have been vandalizing cars and setting fires to local businesses over the past couple of hours.

At 9:30 p.m. Eastern time today it was announced that Darren Wilson would not be indicted for the shooting death of Michael Brown. Although it was said during the announcement that most people were not privy to the facts of the case and were simply going by misinformation being spread by social media, outraged protesters took to the streets in the immediate aftermath anyway.

According to MSNBC, at least three businesses have been set on fire thus far this evening. At approximately 11:35 p.m. Eastern time, rapid gunfire could be heard coming near one of the fires. You can listen to it in the video below, courtesy of Paul Hampel:
