Hundreds took to the streets of Philadelphia on Monday night, to protest the shooting by police of Walter Wallace, a 27-year-old Black man who officers said had a knife.

Interactions between protesters and police turned violent at times, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Video showed many yelling at officers and crying.

Cars and dumpsters were set on fire as police struggled to contain the crowds. More than a dozen officers, many with batons in hand, formed a line as they ran down 52nd Street chasing protesters away. The crowd largely dispersed.

Thirty officers were injured, most struck by projectiles such as bricks and rocks, according to preliminary information from police.

One officer was hospitalized in stable condition with a broken leg and other injuries after she was struck by a pickup truck, police said.
