NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Police say scores of South Florida students who walked out of school to protest the Trayvon Martin shooting investigation instead ransacked a Walgreens.
According to North Miami Beach police, approximately 80 to 100 students rushed through the store's front doors Friday. Police say the students disrupted shelving displays and broke roughly $150 worth of merchandise.
Police say store video shows the North Miami Beach Senior High School assistant principal trying to stop more students from entering. The video did not capture the students ransacking the shelves. It wasn't known if any items were stolen.
Interim Police Chief Larry Gomer said Tuesday that the students had the right to peacefully march in protest, but upending the store crossed the line. Police are trying to identify students who broke or took merchandise.
