LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Target Corp. is temporarily shuttering 23 stores in Southern California and dozens more across the U.S. after looting, violence, and property damage following a wave of protests nationwide.

Stores scheduled to close include several located in Los Angeles, Santa Ana, Long Beach, and others, as many as 50 locations statewide and 175 across the U.S., the Minneapolis-based retailer announced.

A Target store at 7th and Fig in downtown L.A. and another at the Beverly Grove shopping center were among those that have been looted in the last week.

The closures were initially announced Saturday, but a Target spokesperson told the OC Register the “situation remains incredibly dynamic” and could bring even further closures.

    The Target on S. La Cienega was Fedco in 1992, and was looted then. Enough!

    Rodney King’s attackers were acquitted in 1992, despite the video evidence then. Enough!
    If you want peace – without martial law! – then peacefully STAND UP FOR JUSTICE while you may. While you are still allowed to!
