Atlanta police confirmed reports of looting at Lenox Square as protests continued overnight.

Protests started Friday afternoon in downtown Atlanta and became violent after a few hours. 

Multiple businesses around Centennial Olympic Park were vandalized and looted, including the CNN center and the College Football Hall of Fame.

Police started setting up at Lenox Mall after social media talk was of protesters heading that way. 

Shortly after midnight, Atlanta Fire Department sent out a tweet confirming reports of looting and business fires in the Lenox area.
