The looters destroyed several businesses, several of which were set ablaze. Police were at the scene but didn't appear to step in as looters forced entry into businesses.

"Many businesses in San Bernardino are owned by Mom and Pops! They can't afford to rebuild," the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office wrote in a Tweet.

Officials enacted a citywide curfew Sunday night beginning at 8 p.m. until sunrise Monday in order to help curb some of the violence.

This happened during a weekend of chaos and violence as looting and vandalism was reported across other portions of Southern California, including Long BeachSanta Monica and the Fairfax District
