Chaos in Compton: Street Takeover Leads to Looting at Gas Station
A street takeover in Compton turned violent early Sunday morning, leading to a large mob breaking into a gas station and stealing thousands of dollars worth of products. Videos of the incident show a group of people blocking the intersection with cars drifting and tires screeching loudly, causing chaos in the neighborhood.
The situation escalated when several men kicked down the door of a mini mart, followed by many more individuals ransacking the store of thousands of dollars of alcohol, snacks, and condoms. The gas station and convenience store sustained severe damage as a result of the looting, leaving the owners to pick up the pieces.
The aftermath of the illegal street takeover left the intersection of Central Avenue and Alondra Boulevard covered in tire marks, with trash littering the sidewalk outside of the Arco mini mart. Witnesses reported the crowd consisted of around 100 people, who dispersed quickly in all directions after the looting.
