Dramatic video shows car ram into Chicago store amid citywide looting

Dramatic video captured the moment a car was used as a battering ram to smash into a Chicago storefront early Monday during ongoing clashes between looters and police.

The footage published by Storyful shows the white Audi slamming twice into the clothing store on North Rush Street while surrounded by dozens of cheering people.

The looting and vandalism followed angry scenes in the Windy City’s Englewood neighborhood after police shot a person who they said had fired at them.

Meanwhile, police Superintendent David Brown said Monday that 100 people have been arrested and 13 cops were injured during the overnight mayhem, WGN reported.

Brown and Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the looting was not a part of an organized protest.

“This was an incident of pure criminality,” Brown said.
