Mapping What Happened After The Grand Jury Decision

Detail from one map view
Brent Jones | St. Louis Public Radio

Our new map compiles information about the protests and violent unrest that erupted last week. The actions began Monday, Nov. 24, after St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced the grand jury's decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown to death.

In the following week, protests continued in Ferguson, Clayton, St. Louis and various other locales, including several shopping centers.

In our new map, you can sort what happened where by day (Nov. 24-29) and type of event. Protest, street closures, fires, arrest and other information are color coded.

When more than one event -- a protest, for example – happened at the same place, the number is given in a circle.

Rebecca Smith helped gather information for this project.
