OAKLAND (KTVU) -- Violence erupted in the Bay Area early Wednesday morning, during protests against Donald Trump's historic presidential victory.
A KTVU news crew driving through Downtown Oakland, saw several trash fires in the middle of the street.
Protesters set trash cans on fire, and vandalized several businesses, and shattered store fronts on Broadway. KTVU reporter Christien Kafton reported a Wells Fargo Bank between 12th and 13th Streets was vandalized.
Several hundred protesters shouted anti-trump chants and scrawled graffiti.
Oakland Police issued one citation, but there were no injuries to any of the protesters or police officers.
