Riots & looting in Philadelphia after black man armed with knife shot dead by police (VIDEOS)

People broke into shops and torched patrol cars in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania following spontaneous protests sparked by the death of a local man in a police shooting. The cops said the man was armed with a knife.

Protesters, including Black Lives Matter activists, poured into the streets after a 27-year-old man named Walter Wallace Jr. was fatally shot in an altercation with police on Monday afternoon.

A peaceful demonstration quickly descended into chaos as people were filmed breaking into stores and fighting.

Rioters hurled various projectiles at police and torched patrol vehicles.

Philadelphia Police Sergeant Eric Gripp told the media that the officers were called to a home for a man with a weapon. Once they arrived at the scene, they were met by Wallace Jr., who was brandishing a knife. The man ignored the officers’ orders to drop the weapon and “continued to follow them around several vehicles that are over there,” Gripp said.

A graphic video posted on social media shows Wallace Jr. quickly walking towards two officers while a woman, identified in the media as his mother, tries to stop him. The officers shout “Put the knife down!” before firing multiple shots at the man, who immediately falls to the ground and remains motionless.
