Philadelphia Police Fatal Shooting of Black Man Sparks Violent Protests

Police in Philadelphia arrested at least 91 people during unrest Monday night and Tuesday morning, with three people being cited for failing to disperse and about a dozen being charged with assault of an officer.

The unrest came after Walter Wallace was killed when more than a dozen rounds were fired by two Philadelphia officers who say he refused calls to put down a knife in a confrontation that led to unrest in the predominantly Black neighborhood.

Wallace, 27, was shot in an episode filmed by a bystander and posted on social media. Bystanders and neighbors complained that police fired excessive shots.

Police had previously said 30 officers were injured in the unrest.
