Ricardo Munoz, 27, was shot and killed in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, by a police officer when Munoz charged at the officer with a large knife.
Munoz has a history of stabbing people and was awaiting a criminal trial for stabbing four people back in 2019 including a teenager, and when the police arrived at the scene, he was holding the knife to his neck. Officers had to tase him just to get him into custody.
The shooting of Munoz sparked a riot, and people marched from the scene of the shooting to the Lancaster Police Department and went to war with cops outside their precinct over the lie that a police officer shot an autistic kid. Munoz was not an autistic kid, but a deranged man who charged at a police officer with a knife and the officer was forced to defend himself.
According to DailyMail
Police shot dead a 27-year-old man - who was awaiting trial for stabbing and seriously injuring four people - after he charged at an officer while brandishing a huge knife over his head.
Officers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania were called to a home at 4.15pm yesterday by Ricardo Munoz's sister who said he had become aggressive toward their mother and was trying to break into her house.
Body camera footage released by the Lancaster County District Attorney's Office shows the 27-year-old emerging from the house as soon as an officer arrived 10 minutes later.
Munoz could be seen charging at the officer while brandishing a knife above his head 'in clear view' and 'in a threatening manner' before the officer fired at him. He died at the scene.
Yesterday's shooting sparked protests in the city, with people marching from the scene of the shooting to the Lancaster Police Department while chanting 'this is what democracy looks like'.
WGAL-TV reported that protesters also smashed in windows of police cars.
