WATCH: BLM Rioters Injure More Than 30 Officers After Black Man Shot, Killed

Philadelphia police said at least 30 officers were injured on Monday night as Black Lives Matter rioters tore through the city after a police officer shot and killed an armed man.

All but one of the officers hurt in violent clashes with rioters were released from the hospital on Tuesday. The one who remains in the hospital is suffering from a broken leg, among other injuries, after she was hit by a pickup truck, according to NBC4 Washington.

The protests broke out after two officers were dispatched over reports that there was an individual with a weapon.

When they arrived on the scene, 27-year-old Walter Wallace Jr. was holding a knife and refused to drop it.

He continued walking towards the officers, even as both officers and his mother tried to stop him.

The officers then shot Wallace, who was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead.

After the shooting, rioters began looting various stores in West Philadelphia, and multiple vehicles were set on fire.

Protesters targeted officers by throwing rocks and bricks at them, and five police vehicles and one fire department vehicle were destroyed.
