EDMONTON — Dozens of Edmontonians rallied in Churchill Square Tuesday afternoon in response to the Ferguson grand jury’s decision on Monday not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The decision sparked protests across the U.S., during which stores and cars were vandalized and gunshots rang out.
