Chaos broke loose in the Mission District of San Francisco last night following the Giants' World Series victory over the Kansas City Royals.
Fires were set, broken bottles were thrown, businesses were vandalized, fireworks were lit, two people were stabbed and one person was shot during the wild celebration (video below).
San Francisco police, dressed in riot gear, worked to disperse the rowdy crowds until about 1:30 a.m. this morning.
“There’s no way to stop it,” resident Alex Delgado told the San Francisco Chronicle. “If they win next year, it’ll happen next year.”
“I’m lucky there wasn’t any broken windows,” added Kim Jung, who owns a diner.
“Police personnel were assaulted with bottles on Market Street and Mission district. Officers in the Southern district were also struck with bottles,” San Francisco police spokesman Gordon Shyy said in a statement, noted The Guardian. “These objects were thrown at officers as they attempted to disperse crowds and assist firefighters extinguish bonfires.”
