12 Officers Injured After Protests Erupt In North Carolina After An Officer Fatally Shot An Allegedly Disabled Man — Details Here
This is terrifying!
On Tuesday night, violent protests broke out after a police officer in Charlotte, North Carolina shot and killed a black man they claim was armed, though the man's alleged daughter says differently.
People were enraged after 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed in an apartment complex by a black officer, Brentley Vinson, from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department on Tuesday.
Authorities were looking for a man with an outstanding warrant when they approached Scott, who was sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot of the University of North Carolina, on Tuesday afternoon.
Police claim Keith, who wasn't the man they were looking for, exited his vehicle holding a "firearm," and then got back in the car. Officers approached and said the victim stepped out of the car again with a firearm and "posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers who subsequently fired their weapon striking the subject."
