Even if it is Pitt students, at this point it is going to be hard to deny they were taking their lead from events earlier in the day.

even wpxi is saying it looks like mainly college students, not people with signs or people who look anarchist-ish.

KDKA stated it was only protesters at first, but the crowd drew out the students from their dorms, now they're just squatting on the cathedral lawn.

i'm just saying that all of the independent business owners quaking in their boots in the strip didn't have anything to be afraid of.
I don't agree. Just because something didn't happen doesn't mean there was no reason to worry that it might. A poorly aimed rock thrown at a cop doesn't discriminate between its intended target and the window in its path...

Some anchorperson interviewed some anarchist dressed all black who appeared to be some dude in his early 20s. He was asked if his appearance was meant to scare off people or something to that effect.

Police and business owners report that windows were broken at a Quiznos sub shop, the Irish Design Center, and PNC, BNY Mellon and Citizens bank buildings.
I believe the Irish Design Center is also a local business.
