One person was shot. Police say it was protester-on-protester violence.

Police fired tear gas in an attempt to calm the situation.

The protests were a continuation of anger that boiled over following the death of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott, who was shot and killed Tuesday in Charlotte.



Police have said Scott was armed and failed to heed calls to drop his weapon; the victim’s family said he was simply holding a book.
