Racial tensions ran high between police and African-American residents in the area. Police waited outside the establishment, which gathered a crowd of nearly 200 onlookers. The crowd threw bottles at the police, one of which broke through the window of a patrol car. A small riot erupted and the police fled as thousands more people flowed into the streets. The crowd began looting and ransacking businesses. The first fire erupted at 6:30am and every member of the fire and police departments were called to duty. The National Guard and U.S. Army were sent to end the disturbance. The rioting continued for four days and by the end, over 7,000 people had been arrested, many were injured, and 43 people were killed. Thousands of stores had been looted and burned, leaving thousands of people homeless.
