After the police-involved shooting which claimed Walter Wallace Jr. earlier this week, many citizens in Philadelphia have incited riots in protest as a result.

But what happened during the rioting and looting, was how someone (who was doing their job reporting) was attacked by a couple of those who have taken part in the looting.


Posted by multiple sources on social media, YouTuber and reporter Elijah Schaffer was assaulted by a couple rioters while filming a couple segments surrounding a Five Below discount store in the west side of the city.

As you can see up in the headline photo, Schaffer was left with a busted lip and other facial injuries.
