According to prosecutors, Stockley, who is white, shot Smith, who is black, five times following a auto chase and then allegedly planted a gun in Smith's vehicle following the shooting.

Nine city officers and a state trooper were injured and at least 23 people were taken into custody, he said.

A St Louis, Missouri judge has found a white former police officer not guilty of murdering a black man after a high-speed chase in 2011, in a closely watched case that comes amid continuing racial tensions in the US.

Later in the evening, a group of about 300 protesters moved from the courthouse to the city's popular restaurant neighbourhood, the Central West End. "Ho ho! These killer cops have got to go!"

Live Nation and U2 regrettably announce their St. Louis show scheduled for tonight, September 16, 2017 has been cancelled.

"Human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability....we are coming to ask America to be true to the huge promissory note that it signed years ago. Cops can still kill us with impunity". The white officer was charged with murder.

Protesters are shouting that the Friday verdict is unfair and that they want justice. One woman was knocked down by police and stepped over in the violence.

Police blocked protestors from getting on a major highway, so they marched to police headquarters.

Police reported nothing but peaceful protests throughout the morning and into the afternoon.

Hawley said anyone who uses protests to commit crime needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The former police officer killed Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011 and was charged with murder a year ago.

Stockley pleaded not guilty, saying he acted in self-defense and believed Smith was reaching for a gun in his vehicle.

Mr Stockley then ran to Mr Smith's window and fired five shots, hitting him each time. Prosecutors had argued that the former police officer, Jason Stockley, planted a gun after the shooting, something he denied.
