Groups of looters were caught on video   Sunday ransacking and looting two sporting goods stores during the hurricane in South Florida. The police displayed pictures of the suspects.  A Simon’s Sportswear and Foot Locker were some of the targets of the thieves.

Also, a Broward County sheriff’s deputy shot a teenager and arrested another. The two were believed to be in the process of a burglary at a residence in Fort Lauderdale.

Police saw images of the suspects via a security camera. A teenager was taken to a hospital without life-threatening injuries.

None of the group of at least sixteen looters have been identified. They were filmed entering the store through a broken window and leaving with store merchandise. The police expect to make identifications and arrests in the near future.
