More than a dozen people have been arrested and more than 30 officers were injured in protests stemming from the fatal police shooting of a black man in Philadelphia.
Officers said the man refused their orders to drop a knife in a confrontation captured on video.
The man, identified by city officials as Walter Wallace, 27, was shot before 4pm on Monday (8pm GMT) in an episode filmed by a bystander and posted on social media.
Witnesses complained that police had fired an excessive number of shots.
Mr Wallace’s father, Walter Wallace Sr, told The Philadelphia Inquirer that his son appeared to have been shot 10 times.
