The crowd of protesters in front of the police department fluctuated throughout Wednesday evening in the wake of the resignation of the city's police chief Tom Jackson, but by midnight the crowd had begun to disperse.

This morning, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said that the search for the suspect or suspects responsible for the shooting was the department's "number one priority."
