CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -“My heart bleeds for what our great city is going through.”
That’s what North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory told WBTV-TV about the two nights of violence in Charlotte after the fatal police shooting of a black man.
McCrory has declared a state of emergency and is sending in the National Guard.
Police say 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott had a gun when a police officer shot him Tuesday. Neighbors say Scott was holding a book, not a gun.
