ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

During Friday's protests in St. Louis following the Stockley trial verdict, one sound could be heard in the middle of it all -- brass instruments.

Footage of the protesters at the intersection of Tucker and Clark shows four men with brass instruments strolling along other demonstrators. Primarily heard is the tuba. The quartet can even be seen casually passing by protesters with knives and guns.

Demonstrators began gathering around 9 a.m. Friday morning, just after Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson announced a not-guilty verdict in the trial of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley for the fatal shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith in December 2011.
