Sioux Falls city leaders

the violence that broke out Sunday night, saying it marred what had been a positive day of peaceful protests in the city.

Burns said police are going through an extensive amount of surveillance video, and that police took pictures of license plates and suspects throughout the night.

"If you think you can riot, loot, steal, burglarize, and create property damage, and hurt others in this city with impunity, you are mistaken," Burns said. "We will hold you to account, we will find out who you are, through various resources, and we will do our job."
