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

Hundreds of protesters gathered at Kiener Plaza before the Billy Joel concert Thursday to protest the verdict in the Jason Stockley trial.

Protesters begin to assemble around 6:30 p.m. Around 7:10 p.m., protesters began to march down Broadway towards Busch Stadium.

Demonstrators then stopped outside ballpark barricades along Broadway and chanted "white silence is violence" and "no justice, no profits." The protesters later blocked the intersection of Market and Broadway.

The protest marked the seventh straight day of demonstrations in reaction to the verdict in the Jason Stockley verdict.
