Rioters and looters in Minneapolis damaged or looted at least 25 businesses in one night after a homicide suspect committed suicide, CBSN reported.

Looters ransacked the businesses at Nicollet Mall after a rumor that police killed a man there, although police immediately released a video showing the man, who was a homicide suspect, shooting himself in public, according to CBSN.

Looters went after a Target shopping center Wednesday night in Minneapolis, completely destroying the merchandise inside. Looters could be seen in a video stealing and destroying merchandise in the store, meanwhile helicopters flew above the city as chaos ensued and police blocked off several areas of the city.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey also announced Wednesday evening that the city asked the National Guard to assist in the unrest and rioting occurring on the streets of Minneapolis, which began in May after the death of George Floyd.

“What we’re calling for right now is peace,” Frey said at a Wednesday press conference, according to the publication. “What we’re calling for right now is for people to return to their homes.”
