Munoz was mentally ill - diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia - and had not been taking his medications, his sister told local media outlet Lancaster Online.

Rulennis Munoz, 33, said she had called a crisis intervention organisation and a police non-emergency number to get her brother involuntarily committed.

"He had an episode. He was just incoherent and acting out," she said. "I called to find out what the procedure was to get him some help."

Authorities did not immediately explain why an officer was dispatched, although Munoz was facing four counts of aggravated assault after he was accused last year of stabbing four people, including a 16-year-old boy in the face, following a fight.

She said the shooting highlighted a broader problem of poverty affecting as many as half of the city's residents - a predicament exacerbated by budget cuts and the coronavirus pandemic and disproportionately affecting minority communities.

"We must fund housing, social services, and education equitably and adequately in this city," she said. "Lancaster, if we care so deeply about loving our neighbour then let's do it."

The officer was placed on administrative leave, the mayor's office said in a statement, calling it "a heartbreaking day for our city".

The protests over Mr. Floyd’s death, and other deaths of black people at the hands of police officers, have heightened tensions Witnesses told the police that a man with a gun had run up the block, Chief Terence Monahan said at a news conference near the scene less two hours after the incident.

The Lancaster County District Attorney's Office said it was investigating the shooting to determine whether there was a justified use of force. District Attorney Heather Adams acknowledged the protests in a news release later on Sunday and called for calm.

"We ask that acts of protest remain peaceful as violence and destruction of property will become headlines and serve no purpose for the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and neighborhoods," Adams stated.

The protests are the latest in a long line of anti-police brutality demonstrations that began in the US in May, following George Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody.

Most protests have been peaceful, though some have been violent. Police, for their part, have also been accused of excessive force across the country.

As for the use of "chemical munitions" against protesters early Monday, the police department said in a statement that the crowd was given several warnings to disperse before the gas was deployed.
