Couple stands in front yard to point guns at protesters

A row over race and policing in the US state of Missouri ended up with a confrontation between protesters and armed homeowners – and President Donald Trump retweeting and deleting a viral video.

On Sunday, 28 June, hundreds of protesters marched to the home of St Louis Mayor Lyda Kewson to call for her resignation. She lives on a private street and residents say protesters forced open an iron gate.

St Louis police say the owners of another house, lawyers Mark and Patricia McCloskey, heard a commotion and called for help. They told officers they had armed themselves because they felt threatened.

Local media report that Mr McCloskey repeatedly shouted “Private property. Get out.” After a series of verbal clashes, the protesters moved on to demonstrate outside the mayor’s home a block away.
