No violence as protests in Charlotte remain peaceful on fourth night
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The protests in Charlotte over the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott remained peaceful on Friday night.
WSOC reported that the protesters peacefully dispersed at about 1 a.m. with no gas deployed, no injuries and no property damage being reported.
Hundreds remained on the streets of uptown shortly after the midnight curfew, but the protests were peaceful.
On Wednesday, the protests turned into riots and at least four officers suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. One person was left on life support after getting shot by another civilian. That person later died.
Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency earlier in the week and said he would deploy the state National Guard and highway patrol to Charlotte.
Scott was shot and killed by a police officer Tuesday night at a Charlotte apartment complex.
