Minneapolis Police Chief Says Many People Involved in Rioting, Looting Not from City

Police Chief Medaria Arradondo says many of the people who looted businesses and set fires amid the peaceful protests of George Floyd’s death Wednesday night are not believed to be from Minneapolis


ARRADONDO: "We continue to follow that information, that intel, keeping the mayor briefed on that as we speak. I will just say that it was clear to me, and also hearing from our local community leaders, that many of the people that were involved in the criminal conduct last night were not known Minneapolitans to them. So, yes, there were certainly people who were involved in the activities last night that were certainly not recognized as being here from the city."
