‘Anything We Want!’: Looting, Vandalism Reported After Vigil for Unarmed Teen Fatally Shot by Police
(SOURCE) — People smashed car windows and carried away armloads of looted goods from stores Sunday night after thousands of people packed a suburban St. Louis area at a vigil for an unarmed black man who was shot and killed by a police officer. An elected official reported gunshots fired at police.
The candlelight gathering was for 18-year-old Michael Brown, who police said was shot multiple times Saturday after a scuffle involving the officer, Brown and another person in Ferguson, a predominantly black suburb of the city.
Afterward, some people looted a convenience store.
The following YouTube clip reportedly depicts the looting and was tweeted by Robert Edwards, producer at KSDK-TV in St. Louis:
A voice is heard on camera saying that he and others are at the store “where the incident started and looting it, ransacking the QuikTrip.”
Another voice later in the clip is heard yelling, “Anything we want!” as looters empty the shelves.
