From our sister site The Tukwila Blog:

While protests kept many police officers busy in Seattle and Bellevue, groups of looters came to Tukwila and attacked and damaged multiple businesses on Sunday night, May 31, 2020.

Police say that suspects in one group threw rocks and projectiles at officers.

Several suspects were taken into custody at Best Buy.

CS gas was deployed by Tukwila Police in multiple locations in the Southcenter District.

The Target store at 301 Strander Blvd was looted by a group, which later tried to breach Westfield Southcenter mall.

In addition to Target, Bowlero, REI, Firestone, Total Wine and many others were damaged.

There were no verified fires reported, but multiple businesses throughout the entire Southcenter District were looted.

Tukwila Police proclaimed a curfew from 9 p.m. – 6 a.m.

“It’s important to remember that the criminal actions now in Tukwila are not related to BLM or any protest,” Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce CEO Andrea Reay said on Facebook. “Please don’t confuse the two. Please do reach out to organizations that are working to build more equity and inclusion in our community and please, please support these organizations and our local businesses when and how you can.”

Community members quickly organized a volunteer clean-up effort that was planned to start at the Target store at 8 a.m. Monday morning.
