Black Man Told Multiple Times To Drop Gun Before Getting Shot

At least 12 police officers were injured when a North Carolina protest over Americas latest police shooting of a black man turned violent on Tuesday (20 September).

According to family members and a witness, Scott was holding a book, not a weapon. It shows police in full riot gear emerging from a cloud of smoke.

"I can tell you we did not find a book", he said. Police are now faced with tackling the unrest in the city as demonstrators are destroying police cars, setting vehicles on fire and attacking officers with rocks. Relatives and neighbors say he was holding a book.

It is not now clear what the footage shows but there were three cameras on officers at the scene, as well as a dash cam on a police vehicle. He has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

John Barnett, who runs a civil rights group called True Healing Under God, (THUG), warned releasing footage of Mr Scott's shooting may be the only way for police to regain trust. He also said on Wednesday that the officer who shot Scott wasn't wearing a body camera, but other officers at the scene were.

"I will be consulting with our city manager and our police chief and other leaders in our response team to see if that might be a good idea for tonight".

It was the second night of unrest in North Carolina's largest city, where several protesters and 16 officers were injured on Tuesday night. McCrory also announced that the N.C. National Guard and N.C. State Highway Patrol would be deployed to Charlotte after a request from police there.

Federal help also is on the way, with the Justice Department sending to Charlotte a team of trained peacekeepers created to help resolve community conflict. "It's some long-standing divisions in our community over race, we knew they were there, they were simmering but we hadn't done a great job".

The Charlotte Police Chief on Wednesday night announced that a shooting victim died, but hours later the city said the person was in critical condition on life support. The Police Chief says the man was armed; he was told to drop the gun, he did not, and he was shot.

"People that are coming to the scene just to cause problems".

The city unraveled into chaos after a police officer fatally shot a black man at an apartment complex Tuesday. The jury deadlocked and the charge was dropped last summer.
