Shots were fired through the office window of the attorney for a white police officer acquitted in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, before several hundred people gathered in protest on Saturday over a verdict that left Pittsburgh on edge. Police put officers on 12-hour shifts until further notice.
The jury's decision late on Friday in the killing of 17-year-old Antwon Rose II upset his family and touched off a night-time demonstration by about 100 people. That was followed by another protest on Saturday afternoon at an intersection called Freedom Corner in the Hill District neighborhood, the historic center of black cultural life in Pittsburgh.
