People Arrested, 11 Police Officers Injured in St. Louis”

Two of the city police officers were injured by thrown bricks, police said.

There was no indication on the scene that Krewson was in the home at the time.

"Many of the demonstrators were peaceful", O'Toole said.

Protests turned ugly in St. Louis, Mo, on Friday, resulting in the city's mayor's window being broken after a white police officer was found not guilty in the 2011 shooting death of a black man.

According to SLMPD, the officer was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. "This mob was intent on destroying or damaging property, assaulting police officers, and setting fires".

In addition to Krewson's home, a public library and at least one local business was damaged during the protests. O'Toole said officers fired pepper pellets and tear gas to dispel crowds.

The mayor told News 4 she was surveying the paint and damage of her home Saturday morning.

During that confrontation, some protesters were holed up at the Central Reform Congregation synagogue.

Protesters had marched through the West County Center in Des Peres, disrupting shoppers earlier Saturday. They filled the streets there as they marched through the neighborhood, their number growing to what appeared to be more than 1,000. A court document said that Stockley and another police officer chased Smith, a drug suspect, in a auto at more than 80 miles per hour and that he was "going to kill this motherf--er, don't you know it" before instructing the driving officer to steer the auto into Smith's slowing vehicle.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Anthony Lamar Smith, our police, judge, prosecutors, our citizens who find no comfort or justice, and everyone involved in this hard case.
