ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The town hall scheduled for tonight will be postponed as will all others scheduled for this week, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson announced Tuesday afternoon. 

Three were scheduled for Tuesday night, Thursday night, and Saturday afternoon. Tuesday's town hall at Vashon High School was reportedly scheduled to still be held despite daily protests and unrest. 

However, Krewson said in a statement that because the town halls are already in action. 

"After much consideration, we are postponing our town halls  for this week because they are happening in the streets and in my inbox and on social media right now," Krewson said. 

"We are listening." 

Tuesday's town hall was supposed to be the first town hall meeting since protesters started marching in St. Louis Friday. Friday night, vandals targeted Mayor Krewson’s home.

Tensions are expected to be running high at the meeting. The previous meetings were heated and included upset residents stating they were not satisfied with the mayor’s answers to their concerns about policing and crime.
