Philadelphia police tweeted Tuesday night that a large crowd of more than 1000 was looting stores in the Port Richmond area of the city. Earlier in the evening, news helicopter footage showed people appearing to break in and loot a Foot Locker store and another business in that area. The city’s office of emergency management tweeted that police were asking residents in some districts to stay inside.

Wallace’s father told the Philadelphia Inquirer that his son struggled with mental health issues and was on medication. His family said there was a domestic problem, and police were told the younger Wallace had mental health issues.

Shaka Johnson, an attorney for the family, said that law enforcement was called because they wanted an ambulance. “The call that was initially put in to 911 dispatch was for medical intervention. That’s what it was for,” Johnson said.
