Preliminary damage report from first 2 nights of Cincinnati protests

Dozens of local businesses damaged during weekend of protests

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A city report shows extensive damage to Cincinnati businesses during the first two of three nights of protests that turned violent and destructive at times over the weekend.

City Manager Patrick Duhaney provided the list to council members, and Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman released it to us late Sunday.

A cost estimate isn’t available yet.

Dozens and dozens of business windows were smashed, trash bins and planters were thrown into the street, and dumpster fires were set in Over-the-Rhine and the Clifton/Corryville area near the University of Cincinnati.

Early Sunday, someone purposely fired a gun at a Cincinnati police officer as police and a SWAT team tried to disperse a large, disorderly crowd at McMillan Street and Ohio Avenue, Police Chief Eliot Isaac said.

No arrests have been made, and the incident remains under investigation while police work to track down the suspect.

Smitherman, meanwhile, vows those responsible for damaging the businesses also will be held accountable.

"We have small business owners who have put their blood, sweat, and tears into these businesses. We are coming out of a pandemic when their businesses have been closed for a couple of months. It’s a terrible time for hose small business owners, so for someone to rob them now is just a massive blow. These businesses are already teetering on whether they will reopen again.

“We’ve been protecting the peaceful protesters and now we are going to protect our businesses in our neighborhoods. It’s one reason why we were so serious tonight about the curfew. We are not going to tolerate this in our city."
