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

Protesters gathered outside the St. Louis Justice Center in downtown St. Louis.

A protest was originally planned for the Delmar Loop Monday night and people started to gather there around 6:30 p.m. However, protest organizers say they successfully shut down the Delmar Loop without protesting.

Many businesses in the Delmar Loop said they would close early on Monday night due to a fear of destruction. Some businesses sustained broken windows and other damage after unrest occurred on Saturday night.

Hundreds were outside the Justice Center raising money to get more than 50 people out of jail who were arrested during demonstrations on Sunday. Those arrested had to pay a $50 fine, depending on whether or not they have a criminal record or owe money for other fines. 

Lots of protesters stuck around Monday night even as rain fell. Around 9:30 p.m, the many demonstrators started to leave.

Monday marks the fourth straight day of protests against the non-guilty verdict in the Jason Stockley.
