A riot has erupted in Philadelphia after a black male was shot by police after charging at officers with a knife.

The shooting took place shortly before 5 p.m. on Monday, and footage of the incident quickly went viral on social media.

The man, Walter Wallace, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

“Officers ordered him several times to drop the weapon,” Philadelphia Police Sergeant Eric Gripp said. “He did not do so.”

“Fortunately it appears the officers were wearing body cameras,” Sgt. Gripp said. “The cameras were activated. So we should have a lot of video along with eyewitness statements.”

As usual, Black Lives Matter did not care about what actually happened during the incident, and a riot broke out.

The violent mob was reportedly throwing buckets and bricks at the officers.
