The Pennsylvania National Guard was mobilized Tuesday during a tense second night of protests in Philadelphia over the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace, a 27-year-old Black man.
Driving the news: Philadelphia Jim Kenney (D) and Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said in a joint statement Monday that police were launching a "full investigation" to answer questions that arose from video that captured part of the incident with police.
- Wallace's father told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the family had called 911 for a "medical intervention" as the 27-year-old was experiencing a mental health episode. But the police showed up instead.
- In the video, police appear to be asking Wallace to put a knife down.
What's happening: The Philadelphia Police Department tweeted late Tuesday that residents in several districts should remain indoors because of "widespread demonstrations that have turned violent with looting."
