Mob riots have exploded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with false rumors sweeping over the community hours after an aggressive man wielding a knife was shot by a police officer after attacking him.

An area prosecutor is stating that the shooting is being investigated, but the video footage paints a clear cut picture of events, showing a man aggressively rushing a police officer with a knife.

“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.”
