CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) - A riot has broken out at Marketplace Mall in Champaign. 

The riots are in wake of George Floyd's death where a police officer was seen kneeling on on his neck for around 8 minutes.

There were several broken windows and looters were seen rushing in and out of the building stealing clothes and other items.

Crowds were seen holding signs in front of a row of cops blocking off the Macy's entrance.

WAND's Justin Razavi caught it all on camera in the Facebook Live below.

Champaign Police recommend that people stay in their homes if they are able to. Resources have been deployed around the area. Police say a few arrests have been made.
