WATCH: St. Louis Protesters Vandalize Police Car After White Officer Acquitted of Murder
Protesters angry that a white police officer was found not guilty in the shooting death of a black man following a high-speed chase in 2011 demonstrated Friday in the streets of St. Louis.
Will Carr reported from the scene that several protesters jumped atop a cruiser and smashed its windshield.
Behind Carr, police could be seen lined up in riot gear as several people stood a few feet away shouting insults and reportedly throwing the occasional piece of debris.
The protests materialized after former Officer Jason Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder in the killing of Anthony Smith.
Gov. Eric Greitens (R-Mo.) called in the National Guard earlier Friday to assist the officers.
Carr was forced to cut his live report short after a young woman began shouting at him and other protesters - including one in a Guy Fawkes mask - approached him.
Smith had prior arrests on weapons charges when he allegedly tried to run over two policemen, prompting Stockley to pursue him.
Stockley shot Smith when he refused commands to put his hands up and appeared to be reaching around in his vehicle.
Stockley has since left the force and moved to Texas.
