ST. LOUIS, MO —A few hundred protesters were beginning a march in the St. Louis suburb of University City in the latest of two days f demonstrations in opposition to the acquittal of a white former police officer in the shooting death of a black suspect.

The Delmar Loop where the march took place is an eclectic district that includes hip concert venues, restaurants, shops and bars and includes the famous Blueberry Hill where Chuck Berry played for many years. The marching and chanting was similar to demonstrations Friday night in the Central West End neighborhood in St. Louis and earlier Saturday at suburban malls.

Both U2 and Ed Sheeran canceled planned concerts in St. Louis Saturday and Sunday because police couldn’t guarantee adequate security during the protests.
