A KMOV news van was vandalized during last night’s looting and rioting in Ferguson, MO.
The rioting and looting broke out after a prayer vigil for an unarmed 18-year-old black man who was shot and killed during an altercation with Ferguson police.
The St. Louis CBS affiliate posted a picture of the van to its facebook page. The van’s driver side and rear windows were broken. The station said the crew was forced to flee for its safety, but was unharmed.
Brian Schellman, with the St. Louis County Police Department, said close to 300 police officers from at least 15 different departments were called to Ferguson when angry mobs began smashing windows, setting fires and looting businesses in the area.
KMOV reports 32 people have been arrested and 2 police officers were injured during the riot.
