    After two nights of violence, Charlotte braces for a possible third, with police already describing Thursday night's demonstrations as an "unlawful assembly."

    Demonstrators have taken to the streets of the North Carolina city for the third night to protest the police shooting death of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott. Police have refused to release video of that incident to the public, though they have allowed Scott’s family to view the tapes.

    Protests turned violent on Wednesday night after gunshots were reported and one individual was rushed to the hospital. He died of his injuries. Police say the shooting was a "civilian-on-civilian" crime. The victim has been identified as 26-year-old Justin Carr.

    Charlotte mayor has signed order establishing a midnight curfew.

    The state’s National Guard has been mobilized.
