Protesters took to the streets over the weekend in St. Louis, Mo., to protest the not guilty verdict of a former officer’s fatal shooting of a black man.

Protesters marched against a judge’s decision to not convict former police officer Jason Stockley in the 2011 fatal shooting of driver Anthony Lamar Smith. While most of the protests were largely peaceful, they grew tense at night as people began to wreak havoc on businesses, vandalize property and assault law enforcement officers.

Here are ten photos that best capture the demonstrations that took place from Friday to Sunday night:

Protesters plan to take to the streets again on Monday.

“There will be a lot of things that will be planned that we won’t talk about that will disrupt and make people uncomfortable,” Reverend Darryl Gray, an activist, said.
