Evanston police responded about 2:30 this afternoon to another report of looting at the Best Buy store on Howard Street. And this time, initial reports suggested the Target in the same shopping center may also have been hit.

This afternoon’s incident appears to have been somewhat less extensive that the incident Sunday evening, with fewer people involved.

Police reportedly have taken a at least three people into custody in connection with this afternoon’s incident.
