Philadelphia’s ABC News reports:
Officials in Philadelphia closed off much of Center City after peaceful protests over George Floyd’s death turned into a weekend filled with destruction, with store windows smashed, merchandise taken from stores and police vehicles and structures set afire.
And while looters continued to break into stores across the Philadelphia area on Sunday, it was a much different scene at the South Philadelphia Target store.
Dozens of residents stood outside to protect the store on Mifflin Street, near Columbus Boulevard on Sunday evening. A handful of neighbors could still be seen guarding the doors early Monday morning.
A different Philly Target was looted.
Check out these looters at the Target in Wynnfield Heights, #Philadelphia. They left the magnet for their business on the side of their van 😂😂😂🤦♂️#COVID19 #GeorgeFloydProtests #Protests2020 #Riots2020#BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloyd
