Lancaster Peaceful After Night Of Unrest Following Officer-Related Shooting


Protests remained peaceful Monday night into early Tuesday morning in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, following a night of unrest after a man was fatally shot by a police officer.

Protests started after a police officer on Sunday shot and killed Ricardo Muñoz, 27, who chased the officer with a knife, body camera footage shows. The officer was responding to a 911 call where a woman said that her brother was acting aggressively towards her mother and attempting to break into her home, according to the Lancaster Bureau of Police.

Lancaster erupted into Monday morning after the shooting, and eight were arrested as rioters set fires and vandalized businesses, according to a police statement.
