PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As protests turned violent and looting broke out in several parts of Philadelphia, there was a sign of hope and unity in South Philadelphia Sunday night. A group of residents peacefully stood guard outside of a Target store.
Chopper 3 was over the scene where police officers could also be seen walking among the crowd.
It comes after widespread looting took place in Philadelphia Sunday as protests took a violent turn in the city for a second straight day. A Target off City Avenue was struck by looters earlier Sunday.
A citywide curfew began at 6 p.m. and runs through 6 a.m.
