Break-ins and looting caused significant property damage at numerous businesses in Brooklyn Center late Sunday night – which happened a few miles away from where police were responding to protesters after the fatal police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. 

As of 10 a.m. Monday, the alarm inside T.J. Maxx located at 1300 Shingle Creek Crossing was still buzzing as workers cleaned up glass outside and boarded up windows. 

Cleanup happening at nearly every business in the Shingle Creek Crossing shopping hub, as all stores were closed following a night of civil unrest. The only people in the vast parking lot were people cleaning up, some members of the media and National Guard troops and local police who were monitoring the scene. 

Damage estimates are unknown at this point, but most businesses at Shingle Creek Crossing were affected, which is located near Hwy. 100 and Bass Lake Road. 

Among those responding to the looting during the overnight hours was Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher, who posted a handful of photos to his Facebook page and commented that it was a "disappointing night." 

Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington, speaking very early Monday morning, said approximately 20 businesses were damaged.
