Another black man, killed by the police. Tuesday, as officers looked for another man they were looking to serve a warrant on, police came across Keith Lamont Scott. A father of seven, Scott was shot and killed by police as he sat in his car reading a book, waiting for his son to come home from school.
After repeated instruction to put his gun down, which he didn’t have, it was a book, the police opened fire, killing Scott.
Because another black man was murdered by police, citizens of the city have taken to protesting. Tonight, a CNN correspondent was body-checked and knocked to the ground while reporting live on air. People are taking out their frustrations on anyone in the area.
