Emergency declared in US city of Charlotte after deadly police shooting

CHARLOTTE: Violence flared Wednesday in the southern US city of Charlotte, North Carolina, in a second night of unrest ignited by the fatal police shooting of a black man.

Several hundred people taunted riot police in front of a hotel in the city center, during which a man fell to the ground. Witnesses said police brought him into the hotel after he fell, leaving blood on the sidewalk.

Some protesters banged on glass windows, others threw objects at police and stood on cars as police appeared to fire tear gas, prompting demonstrators to run.

“We are calling for peace, we are calling for calm, we are calling for dialogue,” Mayor Jennifer Roberts said earlier in the day. “We all see this as a tragedy.”
