Last night, the city of Minneapolis burned.

Protesters began gathering in the early afternoon at the spot where 46-year-old George Floyd was killed by police on Memorial Day, where an officer knelt on his neck until he died.

On Thursday morning, smoke hung over Minneapolis and looters carried merchandise from a damaged Target store with no interference by police. Obscenities were spray painted on the exterior of the store.

And that's not the only store that was looted. Protesters broke into a Target store, a Cub Foods, a liquor store, a Dollar Tree and an auto parts store. Fire erupted in the auto parts store, and city fire crews battled the flames. Protesters set other fires in the street and at an under-construction housing complex.

Then there was a death.

Police believe that a man was shot and killed by the pawn shop owner. People on the ground say that the shop owner suspected that the man was attempting to loot his store.

It's not clear whether police plan to take any action against the shop owner.

Here is the video of the aftermath:
