Demonstrators Return To Uptown Streets For A Third Night; Midnight Curfew Now In Place
CMPD and the City of Charlotte have put into place a curfew between and midnight and 6:00 a.m. It begins tonight and will last until the state of emergency is lifted.
Demonstrators have gathered in Uptown Charlotte tonight, sending a message against police violence. The action comes two nights after the Tuesday killing of Keith Scott by a CMPD officer.
A few hundred people gathered near the Omni Hotel and the Trade and Tryon area - some carrying signs or megaphones.
So far tonight, the demonstrations have appeared peaceful - after a protest last night led to a fatal shooting. Police tonight say the protester shot last night by another civilian has died of his injuries. 26-year-old Justin Carr was shot in the head at 8:30 last night outside the Omni Hotel, according to police - who say they are still looking for witnesses.
