Police say three officers have been injured during a protest in the Central West End.  Police tweet, “Transported to a hospital for serious injury sustained from brick thrown at him at Kingshighway & Waterman.”

Two of the injured officers have been taken to the hospital.  The third officer was injured but refused treatment.

St. Louis MO. Protests erupt after ex-cop Jason Stockley found not guilty in black man’s death. Thirteen people were arrested during protests Friday in downtown St. Louis after a judge found former police officer Jason Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of black motorist Anthony Lamar Smith.

Demonstrations after a former cop was acquitted for killing a black man in downtown St. Louis turned violent late Friday as at least 9 officers were injured and protesters throw bricks into local businesses, including a library. 

Two officers were taken to the hospital after being hit by bricks, and a third was injured but refused treatment, CBS affiliate KMOV-TV reports. Injuries included possible broken jaw as well as another officer with a dislocated shoulder, said St. Louis acting police commissioner Lawrence O’Toole.

O’Toole said at a press conference early Saturday police are awaiting confirmation on a number of people taken into custody as of right now and the charges that they will face. 

According to KMOV-TV, the altercation began when a group of protesters converged on Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home and threw rocks and broke windows, as well as splashed red paint on the building. O’Toole said Krewson’s house sustained damage.

Police responded immediately and cleared protesters from the property. The crowd was pressed further and further back from the home, and officers warned anyone who did not comply with orders would be arrested. 

Tear gas was later deployed as more than 100 officers gathered in riot gear and gas masks in the area around Krewson’s home. Flashbangs were deployed to disperse the crowd and protesters threw objects at the advancing a police line, including tear gas canisters. O’Toole said orders to disperse were given numerous times, tear gas was deployed after officers were assaulted with bricks and bottles. 

O’Toole said “officers have been tolerant and used great restraint.”
