Charlotte protesters call for resignation of mayor, police chief

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WJBF) – Some protesters in Charlotte say they’ll attend a City Council meeting and call for the resignation of the mayor and police chief, after police shot and killed a man last week.

The protesters say they’re unhappy with how they handled the investigation of the shooting of 43-year-old Keith Scott.

Police say Scott was a threat and refused to drop a gun despite repeated commands.

Police released both a body-camera and dashboard camera video on Saturday but the video does not clearly show if Scott had anything in his hand.
