CHARLOTTE, N.C.—As workers boarded up smashed windows in downtown Charlotte on Thursday afternoon, out-of-town protesters arrived to join demonstrations against the Tuesday afternoon shooting of a black man by a black police officer. During the first two nights, the initially peaceful protests devolved into violence.
Police say the shooting was justified. The family of Keith Scott, 43, dispute the police account and want the department to release videos of the confrontation. Police say it would jeopardize the investigation. Chaos has ensued.
