The Spoil Me Salon and Spa hair salon had several windows damaged after bricks were thrown in.

When the owner arrived and saw the damage and police in riot gear trying to break up a crowd. The looters then returned after the scene and she said that is not right.

Shaw said she has been in business since 2011. She was hoping to open Wednesday, but now doesn't know if that is going to be possible even if the city does move into Phase 3 of its reopening plan.
