Protests turned violent for a second night in Charlotte, North Carolina following a fatal shooting of black man by police. A state of emergency has now been declared.
One man was shot and injured during last night’s protest. Police said that another civilian was responsible.
A video shows the man, who has not yet been named, as people try to help him and call for assistance.
He is in a serious condition, but contrary to some early reports was not killed.
Mayor of Charlotte, Jennifer Roberts, is said to be considering introducing a curfew to the city.
Accounts differ over the shooting of Scott. According to police he was armed with a handgun and threatened officers.
His family claim he was holding a book, not a gun.
