ST. LOUIS (KMOX/AP) - The couple who appeared to aim guns at protestors in the Central West End over the weekend, has filed a report with St. Louis Police alleging they saw protestors who were armed so they then armed themselves and called police.
The couple claims they saw a large group break an iron gate marked with, "No Trespassing" and "Private Street" signs.
The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's office tells KMOX, the incident is being investigated.
The marchers were angry at Mayor Lyda Krewson for reading aloud the names and addresses of several residents who wrote letters calling for defunding the police department. The group of at least 500 people chanted, “Resign, Lyda! Take the cops with you!”
Video on social media showed protesters walking through the gate. It was unclear when it was damaged.
