After the police shooting of knife-wielding Ricardo Munoz in Lancaster, PA on Sunday, there were protests outside the police station which quickly got out of hand. In response to vandalism and arson, police eventually made 13 arrests:
The disorder outside the Police station escalated as suspects continued to throw items at Police Officers as well as cause damage to the Police station, a parked vehicle and the front of the US Post Office building. We have also been receiving calls all morning from downtown business owners as they discovered damage from vandalism to their businesses.
Officers continued the use of chemical munitions in efforts to disperse the rioters as the suspects piled street signs, trash cans, a metal dumpster, a metal bike rack, pieces of plywood and a wooden pallet at the intersection of N. Prince St. and W. Chestnut St. The suspects filled the dumpster with additional trash bags, as well as the wood, and set the contents on fire.
Officers made a total of (8) arrests ( The updated total is 12 adults and 1 juvenile ) related to the arson/riot outside of the Police station.
