Philadelphia officials said Thursday they expect to release police body camera footage and 911 audio in the fatal shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. by the end of next week.
The fatal shooting Monday sparked protests and calls for changes to police training. Police have said that Wallace, 27, had a knife, was ordered to drop the weapon but continued to advance on the officers.
Wallace’s family has said that Wallace had mental illness and they called 911 hoping for medical treatment, but police arrived first.
Each of the two officers on the scene, who have not been publicly identified, fired seven times, police have said.
