Riots and looting broke out Monday night in Philadelphia after two police officers shot and killed a Black man who chased them with a knife, Breitbart News reported. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets and began assaulting officers, looting vehicles and stores, and setting at least one police vehicle on fire.
One police sergeant, a 56-year-old female, sustained a broken leg after being run down by a large black pickup truck. The driver appeared to intentionally plow through a line of police officers attempting to block off a street from rioters.
