State of emergency for Charlotte as unrest over police shooting continues

The governor of North Carolina has declared a state of emergency in the city of Charlotte, sending in the National Guard, as unrest over a police shooting continues.

Violence erupted for a second night as protests over the killing of a black man spun out of control. One protester is in a critical condition after a “civilian on civilian” incident, the city said. Riot police used tear gas as they faced hundreds of protesters.(BBC,2016)
