FERGUSON, Mo. - Between 20 and 25 Walmart employees took shelter inside their Ferguson store Sunday night as rioting and looting ran rampant in the area around them.
A Walmart store employee told NewsChannel 5 the store was overrun by looters.
Officers barricaded the front of the store, but many looters had already made their way inside the store. The employee said they smashed glass cases containing electronics, and stole all of the televisions.
Photos taken by NewsChannel 5 photographers show toilet paper strewn across sections of the parking lot.
By the time our crews arrived at the Walmart, the store was empty and police had established a presence outside to prevent further looting.
Early Monday morning officers were still patrolling the store.
The store did not reopen Monday morning; employees are cleaning up the inside of the store.
According to employees, dozens of looters did make their way into the store, stole items and then left.
