HERALD SQUARE, Manhattan (PIX11) -- In the midst of Black Friday shopping, dozens of protesters gathered outside the Macy's store in Herald Square to protest the grand jury decision to not indict Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting unarmed black teen Michael Brown.

Holding signs that read "BOYCOTT BLACK FRIDAY" and "DON'T SHOP," protestors chanted "No justice, no peace!" in front of the flagship store.

Protestors also marched through Times Square and other parts of the city.

At least 7 people were arrested.

After the decision was announced Monday evening, violence erupted in Ferguson, with police cars and businesses being torched. Protestors also flooded the streets of New York City, blocking traffic on several bridges.

On Friday in St. Louis, protesters shut down two of the city's biggest malls, staging a "die-in."
