TULSA, Okla. — Police arrested four people late Monday night in connection to protests that became violent in south Tulsa.
The peaceful protest near 71st and Memorial turned violent late as police and the Oklahoma National Guard responded to reports of vandalism and looting.
Police say 18-year-old Richard Berumen first threw rocks at police, then started encouraging people to get violent -- eventually tossing a shopping cart through a glass window at AutoZone at 71st and Memorial.
Police had to chase Berumen, but arrested him for inciting a riot, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery on an officer, and other complaints.
Police shared video of the damage caused on Facebook Tuesday afternoon:
Landon Johnson and Terrell Mayfield were also arrested and accused of throwing rocks at police.
Police arrested Keith Warren on complaints of public intoxication but they say they believe he was also connected to the protesting.
Officers say all four of those arrested are from Tulsa.
Tulsa police also warn they will make more arrests in the future if people continue to vandalize and loot -- and say they could make more arrests if they can identify people seen looting and causing damage in videos posted online.
