Unrest in Charlotte, North Carolina: Scenes from the protests
Crowds marched again in Charlotte overnight but the city remained mostly calm early Friday after authorities declared a curfew following two nights of violence.
Demonstrators massed on the city’s streets to protest the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott and demand the release of video that could resolve questions over his killing.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Capt. Mike Campagna said officers didn’t plan to enforce the midnight-until-6 a.m. curfew if protests remained peaceful.
Two officers were treated after being sprayed with a “chemical agent,” police said just after midnight. An EMS official described the incident as minor, and said both officers were checked by medical staff and returned to duty.
Marches continued into the early hours of Friday morning.
