More Soros BLM Democrat Brownshirt RIOTS over an armed individual, most likely with a criminal history, legitimately shoot by law enforcement TRYING TO SAVE THEIR OWN LIVES
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A black police officer shot an armed black man at an apartment complex Tuesday, authorities said, prompting angry street protests late into the night.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department tweeted that demonstrators were destroying marked police vehicles and that approximately 12 officers had been injured, including one who was hit in the face with a rock. Television coverage showed police firing tear gas to break up the crowd. The protests came just hours after another demonstration in Tulsa, Oklahoma, over the shooting there of an unarmed black man by police.
Charlotte police went to the complex about 4 p.m. looking for a suspect with an outstanding warrant when they saw the man — not the suspect they were looking for — inside a car, department spokesman Keith Trietley said in a statement.
Officers saw the man get out of the car with a gun and then get back in, Trietley said. When officers approached, the man exited the car with the gun again. At that point, officers deemed the man a threat and at least one fired a weapon, he said.
