Tesla store among shops vandalized overnight in Chicago


DETROIT — A Tesla store along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile shopping district was broken into overnight Sunday during numerous acts of vandalism in the city’s downtown commercial area.

One video shows a number of people running into the Tesla-Gold Coast location on North Rush Street after the store’s windows were broken. It’s unclear whether any vehicles were stolen or destroyed.

A call to the store Monday afternoon went to voicemail, and a Tesla spokesman did not return a request for comment.

A number of other stores — including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom Rack, Macy’s and Ralph Lauren — also were looted, according to The Washington Post.

The unrest reportedly stemmed from an incident earlier Sunday when officers shot and wounded a 20-year-old man after he fired shots at them while being chased.

More than 100 people were arrested overnight, The Chicago Tribune reported. The paper said 13 officers were injured during the unrest, including a sergeant who was hit by a bottle.
