BREAKING! NC GOVERNOR PAT MCRORY HAS DECLARED A STATE OF EMERGENCY AND CALLED IN THE NATIONAL GUARD.
PINNED TO THE TOP OF THE HOMEPAGE 9/21. SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWEST POSTS. THIS POST WILL BE UPDATED AS EVENTS UNFOLD.
The black protester shot (and possibly dead) was apparently gunned down by another black, not by police or a white person.
One person is on life support and two other people were taken to the hospital during protests Wednesday evening in Uptown Charlotte, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney and emergency personnel.
During an interview with Megan Kelly on FOX News, Chief Putney confirmed that the “last information we got is deceased at this point.”
FOX News reported that at least seven officers were taken to the hospital.
Medic said they responded to multiple incident in Uptown, specifically around the College Street area. They said a total of three patients were related to the situation in Uptown. One person had a life-threatening gun shot wound and later died. The other two had non life threatening injuries.
The live stream is up and working as I write, with shots being fired NOW!
More later. This is a breaking story that seems to be turning more violent.
