Police in Los Angeles have released footage showing a crowd ransacking a 7-Eleven convenience store in the city’s Harbor Gateway neighborhood early on Monday, August 15, and have asked for the public’s help identifying the people involved.
The footage depicts chaotic scenes as people streamed into the store at around 12:40 am. Police said looters grabbed “all the snacks, drinks, cigarettes, lotto tickets, and other merchandise,” vandalized the store and “threw merchandise at employees.”
The crowd then left the store and had dispersed before police arrived, the LAPD said.
