St. Louis police were called to Maryland Avenue and Euclid in the Central West End around 8:45 pm after receiving a call for a person struck.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer David Carson was at scene and captured a man with a gun inside the vehicle flashing his weapon at demonstrators.
From the FOX 2 Now Facebook page – the protesters jumped on the man’s car.
And the locals are getting tired of this lawlessness.
UPDATE: The protesters said the man hit one of the protesters in the street.
FOX 2 reported:
Witnesses say the minivan the man was in hit one of the protesters in the intersection.
Police arriving on scene stop protesters from climbing onto the minivan.
Around 200 protesters were marching at the time in response to no indictment against a New York police officer accused of using a choke hold to kill an unarmed African-American male being questioned about selling loose cigarettes.
