Minneapolis Target looted as protests turn more violent. Multiple videos shared on Twitter showed a chaotic scene with dozens of people running in and out of the Target store entrance, hauling goods like televisions, vacuum cleaners, and lamps.
One video appeared to show the inside of the Target store, revealing trash strewn across the floor, empty shelves, and overturned trash cans and shopping carts.
The looted Target store is located on Lake Street near Minneapolis’ Third Precinct police headquarters, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Target spokesperson Danielle Schumann provided the following statement to Business Insider on the incident:
“We are heartbroken by the death of George Floyd and the pain it is causing our community. We decided to close our Lake Street store earlier today and worked to ensure all of our team members were accounted for and safe. Our focus will remain on our team members’ safety and helping our community heal. Until further notice, our store will remain closed.”
The Lake Street Target store was looted during a protest against the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed black man who was killed on Monday after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck during an arrest.
