ST.LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Protesters gathered outside St. Louis Police Headquarters and chanted Monday night.

The march began at Market and 16th Streets in downtown St. Louis, as hundreds of protesters walked arm-in-arm. Most had blue tape over their mouths and the entire crowd walked silently. 

Many wore shirts emblazoned with “Silence is Violence”.

When the crowd arrived at the police station, they removed the tape and began chanting.

Protesters first chanted "Anthony Lamar Smith" in unison as they stood outside the main entrance. They later chanted "Whose Streets? Our Streets," and "I know that we will win." 

After an hour, they marched back toward the heart of downtown, this time without the tape. Some demonstrators played drums while many others chanted in rhythm with the music. Their path went toward Busch Stadium, and they stopped to block the 64/40 on ramp at Clark. 

They eventually went near Ballpark Village before turning back toward Clark.

This is the third week of ongoing protests in response to the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley.

There were no arrests relating to the protests.
