PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) -Pittsburgh’s newly formed Damage Assessment and Accountability Taskforce has identified another man they say committed criminal acts during a riot downtown on May 30.
DAAT is made up of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
“The DAAT will continue to review intelligence indicating planned violence against property, journalists, private citizens and law enforcement,” Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said. “That intelligence includes online threats to damage and loot businesses, and detailed instructions on how to make a Molotov cocktail. These threats are real: On Saturday, a protester threw an improvised incendiary device at a Pittsburgh Police Officer near Mellon Square, which exploded on the ground and caused a nearby officer to suffer concussion-like symptoms. Police are actively investigating.”
