WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - The mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, on Wednesday called for calm and peace after 16 officers were hurt and police vehicles were damaged overnight during a demonstration against the police shooting of a black man at an apartment complex in the city.
Police Chief Kerr Putney disputed claims made by some protesters that the man killed on Tuesday, 43-year-old Keith Scott, had been unarmed.
"We did find a weapon," he told reporters in Charlotte at a press conference held with Mayor Jennifer Roberts.
