CHICAGO (CBS) -- A South Loop convenience store was looted Sunday night, and dozens of people – mostly teenagers – were arrested, as yet another teen takeover hit a downtown neighborhood.
Police said the group stormed stores and fought through the streets near Roosevelt Road and Canal Street.
As CBS 2's Marissa Perlman reported, there was still trash Monday afternoon around the 7-Eleven at 560 W. Grenshaw St. – adjacent to a Mobil gas station at Jefferson Street. It was a sign of the chaos that had erupted just hours earlier.
Neighboring businesses said this was the second time a group of teens targeted the area in days.
Dozens of teens were seen raiding the 7-Eleven just after 9 p.m. Monday in a social media video from ChitownCrimechasers.
The store was trashed as young people tossed stolen merchandise into the air and ran away with their arms full of goods.
At one point, a fire extinguisher was set off near the gas tanks outside the store.
In a Snapchat video posted in the aftermath, a customer came to try to get cash from the ATM.
"Look what they did to this 7-Eleven!" the customer said in the Snapchat video.
