Many in St. Louis are upset over the George Zimmerman verdict. About 500 people marched in downtown St. Louis Sunday evening.
Many demonstrators said they were marching to show support for Trayvon Martin's family. Most say they're calling for federal charges or a civil suit against Zimmerman who was acquitted in a criminal trial Saturday.
The St. Louis march was mostly peaceful, with a small splinter group getting police attention after overturning a dumpster. Four were arrested.
Organizers say another march is planned for Thursday.
The St. Louis County coroner is trying to determine if police shot an Affton man to death, or if he shot himself.
St. Louis County Police were called to a home in the 9800 block of Arv-Ellen about 7:30 Saturday night because of a man reportedly waving a gun around in his front yard and yelling for someone to call police.
Officers arrived to find 36 year old Shawn Spiros sitting on the front porch.
Police say they tried to talk with Spiros, but he pulled a gun from his waistband, raised it toward officers and then at his own head. Police spokesman Randy Vaughn says it appears that Spiros and an officer fired at the same time. It's yet not clear which shot killed Spiros. The coroner is expected to release a report on Monday.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Police say actor Cory Monteith, star of the hit TV show "Glee," has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel.
The 31-year-old Monteith, who played the character Finn Hudson on the TV series about a high school glee club, was found dead in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver's waterfront at about noon Saturday.
Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard says there is no indication of foul play. Monteith's body was found by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, Lepard said.
"We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death," Coroner Lisa Lapointe said.
Lepard said Monteith had been out with people earlier and that those people are being interviewed.
Monteith had voluntarily entered rehab for substance abuse problems in April.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held largely peaceful demonstrations in three California cities, but broke windows and started small street fires in Oakland, according to police.
The gatherings Saturday night ranged from a few dozen to a few hundred people turning out to protest the verdict in the Florida courtroom over the death of Trayvon Martin, and police said some of the demonstrations continued into the early hours Sunday.
The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested and police were forced to deal with acts of vandalism, mainly breaking windows on businesses and starting small fires in the streets. As the protest wound down with the crowd dispersing, the office said that as of 2 a.m. PDT it had no word of any arrests.
Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters' path.
