According to police, the suspects include a male who allegedly threw a projectile at police, a woman accused of defacing the Mario Lemieux statue in front of PPG Paints Arena and an alleged looter in a business downtown.


Police released the photos as George Floyd was laid to rest in Texas. Peaceful protests the Saturday following his death turned violent after they were “hijacked,” Pittsburgh officials say.

Pittsburgh Public Safety director Wendell Hissrich says a small number of people allegedly damaged 71 businesses, looted goods and left more than a dozen officers hurt after demonstrations turned violent.
