27-yr-old Ricardo Munez was shot and killed by police officers today in Lancaster, PA.
Local 6ABC reported about the incident – It happened on the 300 block of Laurel Street around 4:15 p.m. when Lancaster City police officers arrived for a domestic disturbance call.
Authorities say Munoz was shot and died at the scene. No other injuries were reported.
The district attorney’s office says they are investigating if the force used by police was justified and if a crime occurred.
“A police-involved shooting has significant impact on a community, as we are seeing with the large number of individuals gathering in the streets,” District Attorney Heather Adams said Sunday night. “However, I am asking that all reaction be tempered as the investigation is ongoing. We will do our best to release details about the incident in a timely manner. We ask that acts of protest remain peaceful as violence and destruction of property will become headlines and serve no purpose for the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and neighborhoods.”
According to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office, bodycam video shows the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz, immediately run toward the officer “in a threatening manner” while brandishing a knife in front of the residence.
The footage shows that when the officer gets in front of a residence in the 300 block of Laurel Street, Munoz immediately emerges from inside and runs toward the officer, brandishing a knife above his head, in clear view, in a threatening manner. The officer then fired.
BLM radicals have already begun setting the scene for riots. It usually starts with some brave soul attacking an inanimate object like a police cruiser.

Are we at the point in America where BLM radicals believe police officers should allow a black man to stab them to death, so the rioters won’t destroy the cities they patrol?
