33 cops, 85 others hurt as gangs riot, loot stores in North Phila.

Prime target for the men in the mobs were bars. At least eight in one four-block area were sacked. And one State liquor store, at 20th St. and Columbia Ave., was broken into but it was not immediately known how much bottled goods was taken.

The nightmare began at 9:30 last night with a family squabble in a car in the middle of the intersection at 22nd St. and Columbia Ave. 

A car driven by Rush Bradford, 34, of Nicholas St. near 20th, was stopped there and was blocking traffic.

The masses moved west on Columbia Ave. to 23rd St. and Ridge Ave. At the same time, a spur group of rioters went north along 22nd toward Montgomery, thus covering a two square block area.

The masses moved west on Columbia Ave. to 23rd St. and Ridge Ave. At the same time, a spur group of rioters went north along 22nd toward Montgomery, thus covering a two square block area.

As the waves of looters spread, Rizzo and his men were attempting to form a perimeter around the main trouble area. He sent men out from 23rd St. and Columbia Ave. at every new report.

No shots were fired by the police but several reports of shootings were received by police. A man identified as Harry J. Oullin of 2502 N. Hollywood St., was shot in the leg outside his home by a roving gang of brick-heaving young Negroes, he told police.
