Police fatally shot a man during a domestic disturbance call, which led to riots and vandalism in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Hundreds took to the streets of Lancaster causing disturbances following the shooting death of Ricardo Munoz, 27, on Sunday afternoon.
Some reports indicate that misinformation on social media may have spurred the rioting activity.
Police publicly posted the officer's body camera video on social media Sunday. The disturbing video shows a man chasing an officer down a sidewalk with a knife in his hand before shots were fired.
The county district attorney’s office is investigating the incident
WFMZ-TV reports the rioters gathered outside the police station, damaged a vehicle and were throwing objects at officers. Tear gas was eventually used to disperse the crowds.
So except for a few boarded up glass windows and doors at the @LancasterPolice HQ, there’s no sign of the violent BLM/antifa riots overnight.— Lancaster Patriot (@thelancpatriot) September 14, 2020
