During the protests last year, a suspected looter was shot dead as rioters vandalized stores across Minneapolis.  

The body of the man was found lying on the sidewalk outside the Cadillac Pawn shop by police officers who later performed CPR on him.

Protestors looted and set alight stores including Wendy’s, Target, Walmart and AutoZone. 

Robinson pleaded guilty last September to one count of conspiracy to commit arson.
