Was police shooting of knife-wielding man justified? DA to issue ruling Wednesday

The Lancaster County District Attorney's office is expected to release photos and a 911 recording Wednesday at a news conference to announce its findings on whether a Lancaster city police officer was justified Sept. 13 in fatally shooting a man who charged at him with a knife.

Ricardo Munoz, 27, dropped to the ground and died within minutes of the fatal shots after he came out of his Laurel Street home wielding a knife. The officer, who authorities have not identified, went to the home for a domestic disturbance call.

He didn't just "come out with a knife." That is poor reporting. He ran after the cop. Please get your reporting right.
