MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) The Latest on reaction following decision that clears officer in Alabama mall shooting (all times local):

Protesters in Alabama have burned two American flags outside Hoover City Hall and vowed intensified protests at schools, businesses and homes in response to the state's decision against prosecuting the officer who shot a 21-year-old armed black man while responding to a mall shooting on Thanksgiving night.

As he lit a flag Tuesday evening, demonstration leader Carlos Chaverst Jr. says the symbol won't mean anything to him until black lives matter.

More than a half-dozen officers watched from a few feet away.

A report released by Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall on Tuesday says the officer mistakenly believed Emantic "EJ" Bradford, Jr. fired the earlier shots but was still justified in shooting him.
