Crowds looted the Saks Off Fifth store in downtown Minneapolis on Wednesday, Aug. 26, after rumors swirled that police had shot a man, when in fact the man had killed himself.

Authorities charged several more people in connection with looting last week that occurred when people mistakenly thought a suicide was a police shooting.

A total of 26 people have been charged between Friday and Monday with various crimes ranging from burglary to assault. At least 19 of the cases were previously made public.

The cases occurred late Wednesday into early Thursday, largely in downtown Minneapolis. Four cases charged last week took place in Brooklyn Park.
