This is absolutely horrible!
As we reported, on Tuesday night, protests broke out in Charlotte, North Carolina after 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed in an apartment complex by a police officer from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
As a result of the protest, 12 officers were injured with one being hit in the face by a rock.
Sadly, on Wednesday, more individuals was subject to violence.
According to reports, one person was killed during night two of the Charlotte protests. Authorities say the victim was shot by another civilian, and NOT by police.
Additionally, one police officer was injured during the melee and had to be transported to a local hospital.
The demonstrations have become increasingly chaotic and violent, with people throwing objects and damaging property. In turn, law enforcement officials are wearing riot gear and are spraying angry protestors with tear gas.
We just want all of this violence to end, and for people to be safe!
