BREAKING: Driver Runs Over Police Officer in Philly During Black Lives Matter Riot (VIDEO)

A police officer has been run over by someone driving a large black truck in Philadelphia, where police have seemingly lost control of a violent Black Lives Matter riot.

The riot erupted after a black male was shot by police after charging at officers with a knife. The shooting took place shortly before 5 p.m. on Monday, and footage of the incident quickly went viral on social media.

The man, Walter Wallace, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The rioters were looting shops and at least one police vehicle, attacked police officers, and lit at least one cop car on fire.

“Officers ordered him several times to drop the weapon,” Philadelphia Police Sergeant Eric Gripp said. “He did not do so.”

“Fortunately it appears the officers were wearing body cameras,” Sgt. Gripp said. “The cameras were activated. So we should have a lot of video along with eyewitness statements.”

As usual, Black Lives Matter did not care about what actually happened during the incident, and a riot broke out.

The condition of the officer who was struck and information about the driver has not yet been made public.

The riot is currently ongoing and the Gateway Pundit will be providing updates as the situation unfolds.
