Footage that surfaced online captured looters swarming Apple’s DC store gates and leaving wreckage behind, while others roam chaotically inside.

The facade of the building was ultimately vandalized, with social media users suggesting that nothing was left inside after looters missed no chance of coming away with a trophy.

Elsewhere across the US, Apple stores have also fallen victims to looting. Countless videos show scenes of destruction and chaos in Philadelphia, Portland, Charleston, and Los Angeles.

Rioters were filmed roaming inside and grabbing gadgets from display stands. The stores of luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Michael Kors were also emptied out, as were premises belonging to Nike and H&M.

It comes on the heels of the nationwide demonstrations sparked by the brutal arrest and killing of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis. A wave of protests across the United States descended into violent riots, followed by widespread destruction of businesses, looting, and, on several occasions, clashes with police.
