An angry man drove his car through a crowd of Kirkwood, Mo., protesters marching against the police shooting of a black man Wednesday night.
The protesters blocked an intersection as they carried signs reading “Black Lives Matter” and “Convict Killer Cops #JasonStockley” to demand the conviction of former police officer Jason Stockley, reports KMOV.
Video shows a white SUV driving through the crowd as the driver honks at the protesters. The people in the street scream and jump out of the way to narrowly avoid being hit.

“Asshole!” one person shouts, while a couple of people chase down the car. The car stops and a protester yells at the man, telling him to “get the f*ck out the car!”
Video also shows protesters talking to a man earlier in what appears to be the same car the drove through the crowd. The man complains to the protesters about the streets getting blocked, saying he has a job he needs to get to.
“You are screwing up people making money. What are we protesting tonight?” the man says.
Stockley, the former officer people were marching against, is on trial for killing Anthony Lamar Smith after chasing him in 2011. Stockley shot Smith five times and prosecutors argued during the trial that Stockley put a gun in Smith’s car after the encounter.
The judge presiding over the case is set to give a verdict any day now.
