DAILYKENN.com -- The state's lock down didn't seem to apply to some residing in Newburgh, New York. Parts of the city were aflame due to a civil disturbance (formerly called, 'race riot.')
The race riot was apparently triggered by a police officer shooting a black male.

A fire was burning at the intersection of First and Carpenter streets in the City of Newburgh about midnight Saturday. Tensions ran high in the city Friday evening after police said an armed man was shot and killed by a police officer, and an officer was shot, during an incident on William Street.
By 2 a.m. the sheriff’s office and fire department arrived to extinguished what was left of the fire at First and Carpenter streets.
Earlier Friday night police were called to Concord and First streets in the city for a “large crowd” and “rioting” according to scanner reports.
