A Target in Minneapolis is getting looted to the ground by protesters angry about the death of George Floyd by police.  

This is crazy!

Protesters, including some apparent looters, kept up their presence outside Minneapolis’ Third Precinct police headquarters Wednesday night, some of them throwing rocks and bottles at police. Officers deployed rubber bullets, flash bombs and tear gas to push them back.

Fired police officer Derek Chauvin and three others who were at the scene of George Floyd’s death Monday night were associated with the Third Precinct at 3000 Minnehaha Av.

At the nearby Lake Street Target store, looters were seen leaving the store with items that included large TVs. No police officers were there as of 6:45 p.m.

A smaller, less chaotic protest also continued at Chicago Avenue and E. 38th Street, where Floyd died.

Protesters also gathered Wednesday night outside the Minneapolis home of Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman and the Oakdale residence believed to be that of Chauvin.

About 30 protesters gathered on the boulevard in front of Freeman’s home, chanting and shouting demands for Chauvin, the police officer seen in a bystander’s video with his knee on the neck of the dying George Floyd, to be charged with murder.
