MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On November 30, Charlotte District Attorney Andrew Murray said during a court hearing that the police officer would not be charged as the officer "acted lawfully" in using deadly force against Scott.
"Total of 4 arrests at this time. All charged with obstructing traffic, one also with disorderly conduct," the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said on its Twitter account late Wednesday.
Keith Scott Lamont, a 43-year-old man, was fatally shot by a police officer in September in an encounter that set off a wave of protests in Charlotte, North Carolina. The protesters demanded to see the police footage of the incident.
Over the past year, the United States has seen numerous protests following high-profile cases of police brutality around the country. The incidents have set off mass protests around the country and triggered a national debate about racial inequality and police violence in African-American communities.
