Thirteen people who are accused of committing crimes while participating in a civil disturbance in Lancaster on Sunday night sat behind bars Tuesday, and Your Content has learned bail for seven of them is set at $1 million.

The eight for whom charging documents have been made public are accused of being instigators during demonstrations over the fatal police shooting of an armed man.

Your Content readers were first to know when dozens of Pennsylvania State Troopers were deployed to Lancaster where rioters gathered after officers shot a knife-wielding maniac.

Authorities said the protests degenerated into rioting that damaged Lancaster’s police headquarters and set off an arson fire that blocked a downtown intersection, WFMZ reports.
