Shops in New York City and Southern California were looted, dumpsters and cars set on fire near the White House, tankers drove over protesters in Minneapolis, while the United States struggled to contain chaotic protests over race and policing, shop windows were smashed and fires set outside the White House. Severe storms have triggered tornadoes and left damage in three southeastern states heading toward the Atlantic coast on Thursday, covering two buildings in the nation's capital and prompting meteorologists to search for possible tornadoes in Virginia.
The fires were started by rioters who set the White House and the US Capitol on fire in Washington, D.C., while cars were set ablaze in New York City, Los Angeles and other cities across the country.
Residents said it took nearly an hour for protesters to be on the scene to put out the fire at the church and at the AFL-CIO building. On the West Coast, there was also a fire in Portland, Oregon, where television images showed a small fire burning in a parking lot after police fired tear gas at protesters who had set off firecrackers. The D.C. Fire and Rescue Service tweeted that they responded, but told the City Paper newspaper that they were not aware that a fire started at the restaurant.

The people of D.C. must be able to trust that the MPD will physically protect the white Supremacists while threatening our lives, damaging historic churches, destroying and burning property, and causing serious property damage. In a statement, he said: "MPD has allowed the Proud Boys to physically attack our residents who oppose white supremacy. We never expected the police to protect blacks or anyone critical. Police have said the perpetrators were radical agitators who did not share their protest over the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis resident, and set fire to the building after the break-in.
The flames were extinguished before the rest of the building could be severely damaged, but the rioters set fire to several parked vehicles in the area and an apartment building. Eventually, the parked vehicle, a four-car vehicle, was set alight, local media reported.
The looting and fires went far beyond the 11pm curfew imposed by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. According to local media, several vehicles were set on fire near the White House.
Police in Washington DC said there were reports of looting, arson and violence against police officers and citizens. They said seditionists threw rocks, bottles and Molotov cocktails at police.
Also Sunday night, D.C. police said they were responding to several intentionally set fires in the city, including one on the National Mall in Washington, DC, near the U.S. Capitol. They confirmed that a fire broke out in a parking lot outside the White House on Capitol Hill around 10: 30 p.m.
The unrest arrived at the MPA's doorstep after the building, which houses the global headquarters in Washington, D.C., was damaged and damaged by the protests. Several buildings around the White House were set on fire as protesters moved from the White House area to a street north of Lafayette Park. They lined up in front of a barricade that had formed when the US president returned from a trip to Florida at the White House.
Eleven police officers suffered non-life threatening injuries and one officer was hospitalized after being hit by a brick north of Lafayette Square Park, Newsham reported. A total of nine injured people were taken to hospitals in and around the city centre by 7pm, the fire service said.
