A group of men stood guard to protect their convenience store from looters after riots broke out in Ferguson, Missouri Sunday night, according to a local reporter.
Riverfront Times photographer Ray Downs tweeted an image depicting men “guarding their store in between lots of looting.”

The individuals appeared to be standing in front of a Mally Supermarket location. It was not clear if any of them were armed. TheBlaze was unable to reach the store for comment Sunday night.
Looting occurred in Ferguson after a vigil was held for the death of an unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed by police Saturday. After a few thousand people attended a memorial, some showed their rage by raiding stores and smashing windows.
