A Target store was looted amid the chaos in Minnesota during a protest against the death of George Floyd. Karen Scullin of Fox9 Minnesota shared many of the disturbing videos.

Additional video shows violence and total chaos in the streets.

Per BusinessInsider, 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 Minneapolis Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Target store was looted during a protest against the death of 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.

A video of the incident shows Floyd saying, “Please, please, please, I can’t breathe,” and, “Don’t kill me.”
