Charlotte’s racial divisions deepen over police shooting.- LA Times 20 September 2016

By Jaweed Kaleem and Jenny Jarvie
The fatal shooting by police of a 43-year-old black man has stoked long-simmering tensions over race and policing in this city, with its large African American population and high levels of segregation.

In some ways, the shooting of Keith Lamont Scottdefies the narrative of police violence against black men that has inspired the Black Lives Matter movement. Charlotte, an embodiment of the New South, has a black police chief and a progressive political reputation. And the officer who shot Scott, according to authorities, is black.

But the reaction of many in the city’s African American community has been visceral and sharply at odds with official accounts.

Activists and Scott’s family have disputed nearly every detail that has emerged about Tuesday’s shooting, leaving residents of North Carolina’s largest city grappling with two conflicting narratives.

One person was seriously injured Wednesday night after shots were fired during protests near the Ritz-Carlton hotel in downtown Charlotte, according to the Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Services Agency. Authorities said a civilian fired the shots.  

Hotel managers closed the hotel and barricaded it with furniture, and police in riot gear fired tear gas at protesters and blocked streets.
