Eyewitnesses in Philadelphia tried to stop a police shooting. They couldn’t.

A police officer in Philadelphia fired his weapon repeatedly at a man in an incident that was captured on video by multiple eyewitnesses.

Around 10:15 p.m. Monday, two officers traveling through the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia spotted a man on foot involved in an altercation with multiple people inside a Nissan SUV, authorities said in a statement. When the officers activated their emergency lights, the Nissan drove away, and the male pedestrian was left in the middle of the street. The officers approached the man, who was holding a small item that police said was a utility knife.
