Although most protests were peaceful, some violence broke out between protesters and police officers late at night. All downtown courthouses will be closed, including the federal courthouse, in anticipation of the verdict.

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

The lady, who laid on her back in the street after police officers walked over her, was eventually helped up by several policemen and detained.

Stockley has said he saw Smith reaching for a silver revolver in his vehicle, but the police dashcam, a witness's cellphone video and surveillance film from a nearby restaurant do not show the gun, and prosecutors argued that Shockley had planted it.

Three years ago, similar protests in St. Louis following the acquittal of officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown led to changes in police department procedure as well as nationwide investigations into law enforcement conduct. Protesters also threw rocks and paint at the home of St Louis mayor Lyda Krewson, said Acting Police Commissioner Lawrence O'Toole. One group of demonstrators tried to enter Interstate 40 but was blocked by police officers in riot gear. That's not protest. That's a crime.

US Stocks Rise as Tech Leads; Dow Hits New Record
The outsize move in the Nasdaq was due to the technology sector, which climbed 0.4% thanks to strength in semiconductor stocks. South Korea's Kospi index closed 0.4% higher, bouncing back from an earlier drop, as Asian markets overall finished mixed.

In a statement, Greitens said, "We know this verdict causes pain for many people".

Mr Stockley and his partner said they believed they had observed Mr Smith engaging in a drug deal outside a restaurant. Stockley claimed it was self-defense, that Smith was reaching for a gun. Officers fired tear gas and rubber bullets during clashes with protesters.

Judge Wilson, in his 30-page ruling, said he was unconvinced by the suggestion that Stockley had planted the gun.

Stockley and his partner chased Smith, who was shot five times in his auto.

"We don't want to see property destruction or see people getting hurt", Elad Gross, a 29-year-old St. Louis civil rights attorney, said as protesters gathered in a park near Washington University.
