CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Demonstrators in Charlotte, North Carolina attacked a police car during protests on Tuesday night. Demonstrations began after a black Charlotte police officer shot and killed an armed black man on Tuesday.

Keith Lamont Scott’s family said he had a book in his car when he was shot. However, police say they found a gun at the scene of a fatal police-involved shooting that killed Keith Lamont Scott. “Officers did not find a book where Keith Lamont Scott was shot Tuesday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney,” said Wednesday.

Putney could not confirmed early Wednesday whether Scott was pointing the gun at officers, and said police officer Brentley Vinson, who shot Scott, was not wearing a body camera. Putney said Scott exited the car with a gun and then got back in the car. Police ordered him to drop the gun, and when he exited the car he was shot by police.

Police were in the area to serve a warrant Tuesday when Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed in the parking lot of The Village at College Downs apartment complex in the University City neighborhood, 9400 Lexington Circle in Charlotte.

Paramedics transported Scott Advanced Life Support with CPR to Carolinas Medical Center, where he was pronounced.


The streets in Charlotte, North Carolina, are quite Wednesday morning after angry protests over the fatal police shooting of a black man. The officer who shot Keith Lamont Scott is also black. Police say Scott was armed.

Protests intensified through the night, and flash bangs and tear gas canisters were deployed. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (@CMPD) reported 12 police officers were injured with one police officer hit in the face by a rock. CMPD also reported “agitators” were actively destroying marked police units.

Media sources also reported water bottles were thrown at police, and fires were set by protestors.
