SEATTLE  - Protesters angered by a grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer for killing an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, entered a pair of shopping malls in downtown Seattle on Friday and disrupted a tree-lighting ceremony.

More than 120 people were marching when a group broke off, went through Pacific Place mall and chained shut two doors, Seattle Police Department spokesman Patrick Michaud said.

Seattle police later said on Twitter that a total of five people were arrested in the protests.

It was the latest in a series of demonstrations across the United States to disrupt Black Friday shopping at hundreds of stores. Some protesters called for higher wages at Wal-Mart Stores Inc while others protested over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in an August shooting.
