About 1,000 protesters were estimated to have surrounded Krewson's home, though it is unknown if she was home, and were later broken up by about 200 police officers responding to the scene. Defense attorneys claimed that Stockley believed Smith had a firearm; however, prosecutors alleged that Stockley planted the weapon.
Yesterday, following the acquittal of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, protests flared up in the downtown and Central Wet End areas of St. Louis. Protests broke out Friday following the court decision.
After most protesters drifted away, a smaller group of people police described as "agitators" lingered on the streets in an upscale neighbourhood near the mayor's house.
Friday's demonstrations led to several clashes - including rocks thrown at a police vehicle and objects tossed at officers in riot gear - and culminated when protesters broke a window and spattered red paint on the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson. Although no charges have been filed against the protesters, a police spokesperson said they would be forthcoming.
During the trial, which began with opening statements on August 1, the prosecution argued that Stockley meant to kill, fired a "kill shot" and planted a gun following the fatal shooting. He says the service members might be necessary to help protect critical infrastructure and free up civilian law enforcement to defend people's First Amendment rights.
Stockley and his partner attempted to arrest Smith during a suspected drug deal.
Reverend Clinton Stancil of the Wayman AME Church in St Louis, said: I'm sad, I'm hurt, I'm mad. The officer fired five times into Smith's auto.
After a three-minute high-speed chase, Mr Stockley told his partner, who was in the driver's seat, to ram Mr Smith's vehicle.
