(FOX 9 Minneapolis) Looters have struck a Target store as protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis continue.
FOX 9 crews witnessed groups of looters running in and out of the Target location off East Lake Street Wednesday evening. The store just steps away from Minneapolis police’s 3rd Precinct, the center of the protests over the death of George Floyd.
Loading up a dolly, looters were seen running off with everything from televisions to clothes to groceries.
The looting comes as Wednesday’s protests have become more violent. While most protesters have rallied peacefully, a portion of the group have thrown objects at officers and smashed precinct windows.
