Rioters broke into CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday night, shattering windows, throwing objects at law enforcement officials, and lighting police cars on fire.
After riots escalated over the course of a few hours, rioters appeared to begin pushing police into the building, and threw at least one large firework artillery shell inside the building, which exploded near law enforcement officers.
“SKYFOX5 flew over the CNN Center, located at 190 Marietta Street NW, where protesters could be seen climbing on top of the giant CNN letters outside the building,” Fox 5 Atlanta reported. “Graffiti littered the sides of the building. At one point one of glass doors to the front of the building was shattered by a demonstrator. Bottles were being thrown at police working to maintain order and prevent further damage.”
