Troopers responded to a report of an assault on an Agency of Transportation employee working at the state border crossing in Pownal, state police said.

The injured worker was Carl Hoffman, 59.

Eventually, troopers learned the passenger was Christoph Herrmannsdoerfer, 34, of Williamstown, Mass., police said.

Authorities say looters shot and killed a retired St. Louis police captain early Tuesday, according to reports.

David Dorn, 77, suffered a gunshot wound to his torso about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and died on a sidewalk in front of the looted shop, Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The paper reported the shooting was apparently recorded on Facebook Live.

Illinois man accused of passing out explosives at Minneapolis George Floyd protest

Federal prosecutors have arrested an Illinois man they say attended a George Floyd protest in Minneapolis, and recorded himself handing out explosives and saying “we came to riot.”

Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, of Galesburg, Ill., described by prosecutors as having “distinctive gold teeth,” was accused Monday with civil disorder, carrying on a riot and possession of unregistered destructive devices.

Prosecutors said they have evidence showing Rupert particpated in the George Floyd protest in Minneapolis on Friday, after traveling from Illinois.

PITTSBURGH POLICE SEARCH FOR MAN ACCUSED OF INCITING A RIOT DURING GEORGE FLOYD PROTEST

They said the video he shot at the protest was more than two hours long and was posted to his Facebook account.

“In the video, Rupert passes out explosive he indicates he possessed, encourages others to throw his explosives at law enforcement officers, actively damages property, appears to light a fire a building on fire and loots businesses in Minneapolis,” the complaint says.

“At time stamp 5:11 Rupert stated, ‘we came to riot,’” it also says.

The complaint also quotes Rupert as saying “light that bitch and throw it at them” to another person. That person, the complaint says, lit a device and threw it in the direction of police.

NEW LOOTING SENDS CITIES NATIONWIDE REELING AS DEMONSTRATIONS OVER GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH CONTINUE TO ESCALATE

According to the complaint, on Sunday, Rupert posted more videos to his Facebook account showing him in and around the Chicago area.

He can be heard saying “let’s start a riot” and “I’m going to start doing some damage,” the complaint says.

Floyd, a black man, died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck while Floyd was handcuffed and saying that he couldn’t breathe. The arrest was recorded by a bystander and viewed widely. Floyd’s death sparked protests in Minneapolis and around the country, some of which became violent.

A medical examiner said Monday that Floyd’s heart stopped as police restrained him and compressed his neck.

The charges against Rupert come as civic leaders nationwide have frequently blamed outsiders for bringing trouble into their communities. In Minnesota, Gov. Tim Walz said in the early days of protests that outsiders were responsible for most of the violence. He later backed away from that, and arrest data so far have showed most people taken into custody were from Minnesota.

Chicago police arrested Rupert Sunday for violating a curfew order. Officers said they found several destructive devices, a hammer, a heavy-duty flashlight and cash in his vehicle.

Rupert appeared in federal court in Chicago Monday for a hearing to have him moved to Minnesota to face charges.

Looters run wild in Bronx as video shows NYPD officer being beaten: ‘Fordham is on fire’

Westlake Legal Group looters-run-wild-in-bronx-as-video-shows-nypd-officer-being-beaten-fordham-is-on-fire Looters run wild in Bronx as video shows NYPD officer being beaten: 'Fordham is on fire' Robert Gearty fox-news/us/new-york-city fox-news/person/george-floyd fox news fnc/us fnc article 2bca30b8-18cd-5bae-8f49-0a67a30a1347

Curfew-defying looters with free rein beat a cop to the ground in a disturbing scene caught on video, set fires on streets and ransacked stores in the Bronx late Monday night into early Tuesday.

The chaos finally prompted Mayor Bill de Blasio to dispatch extra police officers to the area, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

“Fordham is on fire,” Uptown Collective tweeted, showing a half dozen fires burning along a trash-strewn Fordham Road in the West Bronx.

“This is an ominous sign familia,” the tweet said, the Post reported. “This is not good for communities of color. Protest is called for but destroying our own community is not. Stay safe.”

The cop being beaten was caught on cellphone video and posted on Twitter by a NYPD police union.

It shows the uniformed officer on the ground as a man attacks him. A second man then runs up and throws an object at the officer. That person runs away as a third man picks up the object and hurls it at the officer. The person who shot the video is heard cursing the police.

The video shows the dazed officer getting to his feet with his gun drawn, holding it down at his side.

“NYPD Cop attacked in the Bronx,” the Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted. “I guess the critics will now say he overreacted. NYPD Cops defend yourselves, you are alone!”

Other video shows dozens of looters racing from a jewelry store as cops pull up close to the fires, according to the Post.

NYPD OFFICER STRUCK BY VEHICLE IN THE BRONX IN APPARENT HIT-AND-RUN, VIDEO SHOWS

“How are we destroying our own communities and are ok with it?” Jose Daniel Rojas asked in a tweet with video of the destruction, according to the paper. “There are serious problems we need to address.”

The mayor tweeted early Tuesday that he had “just left the Bronx.”

“Real problems on Fordham Road, also Burnside Avenue,” his tweet said. “Spoke with Councilman Fernando Cabrera about immediate steps to address the situation.

MACY’S HERALD SQUARE LOOTED AS CURFEW FAILS TO STOP PROTESTERS FROM DAMAGING STORE

“Also spoke to Commissioner Shea + Chief Pichardo, who are sending additional help,” de Blasio said.

The looting happened amid protests over the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody May 25 after Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin pinned him down and kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes – an incident caught on cellphone video.

Chauvin has since been charged in Floyd’s death. Three other officers at the scene have not.

Cabrera called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to activate the National Guard, as in other states, WNBC-TV reported Tuesday.

“Fordham Road is the lifeblood of the West Bronx, providing jobs as well as essential goods and services,” Cabrera said, according to the station. “We are already suffering physically, socially and emotionally from the COVID-19 pandemic. We can’t afford to lose our economic engine.”

Cuomo has placed the National Guard on standby, but believes the NYPD has the manpower to handle the protests, according to the station.

WCBS NewsRadio 880 traffic reporter Todd Kaminski tweeted photos showing the looting aftermath shot from his chopper Tuesday morning.

“Heartbreaking scenes of looted stores, littered streets, and shattered dreams on East Fordham Road and Grand Concourse in the Bronx,” Kaminski said.

The wife of a Wisconsin mayor suffered an injury when she was hit with pepper spray as she took part in a protest over the death while in police custody of George Floyd, according to a report.

The pepper spray incident happened Saturday in La Crosse, where the mayor is Tim Kabat, a Democrat.

Kabat confirmed the incident and said that his wife, Christy, went to the emergency room for treatment, according to WKBT-TV. He said she was OK.

Floyd died in police custody May 25 after Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin pinned him down and kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes in a moment caught on cellphone video.

The mayor questioned why the vehicle was where it was and why the person had pepper spray, the station reported.

“We must keep the focus on honoring George Floyd and in demanding justice and change,” Kabut said in a statement. “What is happening in our country right now is bigger than the mayor or the mayor’s spouse.  It is unfortunate that the peaceful protest was marred by this incident.”

Looters ransacked a boutique owned by a black woman during protests-turned-riots in Dallas following the death of George Floyd, according to a report Monday.

The coronavirus pandemic closed Princess Pope’s Guns and Roses Boutique for weeks. Then after just being allowed to reopen it was vandalized and looted, KXAS-TV reports.

“I can’t believe it,” Pope told the station. “I opened this business in 2014 and [it’s] the only black-owned business on the street. I have worked so hard and have poured so much into this community for it to be done like this.”

Pope said she understands the anger so many are feeling right now but to her, the worst thing to do is to destroy the very businesses that help support the community.

“I am asking us as a community to not tear down other black businesses but come together and focus on the real problem and that is police brutality in America. United we stand but divided we fall,” she said.

New York City police said Monday they are looking for a pair of vandals who damaged the iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan during the weekend’s protests over the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

The NYPD released surveillance camera images of two women they say carried out the vandalism near the cathedral’s front doors Saturday afternoon.

Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday placed Texas under a state of disaster in response to George Floyd protests in Dallas and other cities in the state.

The declaration allows federal agents to act as Texas peace officers in order to “help protect people’s safety while ensuring that peaceful protesters can continue to make their voices heard.”

“Every Texan and every American has the right to protest and I encourage all Texans to exercise their First Amendment rights,” said Abbott, a Republican, said in a statement, Fox 4 Dallas reported.  “However, violence against others and the destruction of property is unacceptable and counterproductive. As protests have turned violent in various areas across the state, it is crucial that we maintain order, uphold public safety and protect against property damage or loss.”

Atlanta’s mayor is worried about George Floyd protests in her city fueling the spread of the coronavirus.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a Democrat, urged protesters to get tested for the virus.

“If you were out protesting last night, you probably need to go get a COVID test this week,” she said Saturday at a news conference. “There is still a pandemic in America that’s killing black and brown people at higher numbers.”

A similar call was being heard in New York City.

Dr. Theodore Long, who is leading New York City’s contact tracing efforts with its public hospitals agency, urged anyone who had been involved in the demonstrations to get tested for the virus and to protect themselves while out, according to The New York Times.

“We strongly encourage anybody who is out in the protests to wear a mask, practice proper hand hygiene and to the extent possible, socially distance, though we know that’s not always going to be feasible,” Dr. Long said, according to the paper.

Bottoms signed an executive order extending a curfew for the city. The new curfew will begin at 9 p.m. Sunday and end at Monday at sunrise, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

Violent protests across the U.S., some of which have turned into riots amidst a pandemic, and the relaxing of lockdowns have health officials worried about new coronavirus infections. The virus has killed more than 100,000 people in the U.S.

Health experts fear that silent carriers of the virus could unwittingly infect others at protests where people are packed cheek to jowl, many without masks, many chanting, singing or shouting. The virus is dispersed by microscopic droplets in the air when people cough, sneeze, sing or talk.

“Whether they’re fired up or not, that doesn’t prevent them from getting the virus,” said Bradley Pollock, chairman of the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of California, Davis.
