Protests in Charlotte, North Carolina, began on Sept. 20, in response to the fatal police shooting of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott at an apartment complex near UNC Charlotte. Police said they warned Scott to drop a gun he was allegedly holding. Neighborhood residents said he was holding a book as he waited to pick up his son from school. The North Carolina governor has declared a state of emergency and called the National Guard into the city after the unrest turned violent for a second straight night.
