The CNN Center in Atlanta was targeted Friday night by rioters protesting the death of George Floyd as unrest continues to spread across the country.
Videos from the scene show a huge crowd of protesters throwing rocks and other objects, shattering exterior windows, spray-painting the large CNN logo sculpture outside the headquarters, and destroying vehicles — including police cars — just outside the building. Some of the vehicles were reportedly set on fire.
