Convenience Store Looted Downtown After Attack

Landon Haaf, WFAA, July 8, 2016


Hundreds of people packed into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven at Griffin and San Jacinto as a massive police presence pushed crowds away from the chaotic scene of the attack [on police in Dallas].

News 8’s crews stationed near the 7-Eleven saw people taunting officers who were protecting the building. Many were drunk and some were believed to be stealing from inside the convenience store.

Some poured alcohol on News 8’s vehicles in the parking lot, forcing our crews to move.
