Late Monday into early Tuesday, police struggled to respond to vandalism and looting along the commercial corridor of 52nd Street, an area that was the scene of clashes between police and protestors earlier this summer.
Walter Wallace Jr. was age 27 and was a twin. He was father and son.
At least one police vehicle was set on fire Monday night and destroyed, and several police officers were injured by bricks or other objects hurled from the crowd. One officer was hospitalized after getting run over by a speeding truck.
This caused people to hit the streets in protest of the killing as police and protestors clashed.
