National Guard deployed in Philadelphia after fatal police shooting

October 27, 2020



The city of Philadelphia saw a second night of protests over the fatal police shooting of a Black man.

Some looting was again reported Tuesday, despite pleas from the man's family for an end to any violence or other chaos.


Other demonstrations Tuesday were described as peaceful, including one drew as many as 500 people.

Philadelphia police tweeted Tuesday night that a large crowd was looting stores in the Port Richmond area of the city. Earlier in the evening, news helicopter footage showed people appearing to break in and loot a Foot Locker store and another business in that area.

Protests in the city erupted Monday after Philadelphia police shot Walter Wallace Jr., 27, after responding to a call about a man armed with a knife around 2:40 p.m.

Police have said officers ordered Wallace to drop the knife several times, but he continued to advance on them while holding the knife. Both officers at the scene fired, striking Wallace in the shoulder and chest, officials said.


Wallace's father, Walter Wallace Sr., told the Philadelphia Inquirer that his son struggled with mental health issues and was on medication. His family said there was a domestic problem, and police were told the younger Wallace had mental health issues.
