UPDATE 02:22 GMT
Can confirm innocent little baby was beaten to death with a book.
And it wasn’t even them jumpout boys that done did it.
One person was shot and killed Wednesday night during a protest in Charlotte, N.C. following the fatal shooting of a black man by a police officer earlier this week. Police said the fatal shots were fired by another civilian.
What started as a prayer vigil over the Tuesday shooting of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott turned into a night of looting and arson, as police officers used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse violent protesters who had split off from the vigil.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney confirmed to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” that an African-American man had died in the shooting outside a downtown hotel.
“We’re trying to disperse the crowd,” Putney said. “We’ve been very patient, but now they’ve become very violent.”
After the shooting, protesters began throwing bottles, dirt clods and fireworks at the officers.
Police kept their distance for about an hour, but moved in as several hundred marchers approached the hotel. Officers in riot gear then began marching arm in arm through intersections, shooting tear gas at people who charged them. One protester knocked down a CNN reporter during a live shot.
Charlotte Medic said it had taken eight patients — seven law-enforcement officers and one civilian — to area hospitals during the protests.

So however many minutes later, Charlotte Observer finally has an article up.

Them jump-out boys got him because he went to a riot to read a book.
One person was shot and hospitalized with life-threatening injuries during protests in uptown Charlotte Wednesday night, Medic confirmed.
Medic said on Twitter that it was treating the patient for a gunshot wound en route to Carolinas Medical Center at about 8:45 p.m.
The person was shot in the area of North College and East Trade streets, according to Medic.
Medic said it was responding to “multiple incidents uptown related to the situation in the College Street area” but was no more specific.
Moments earlier, police fired tear gas at protesters at the entrance to the Omni Hotel in uptown Charlotte. Loud booms sounded, and police said explosives had been used.
“Your life is in danger, you need to move!” police in riot gear yelled.
Protests had remained peaceful in uptown on Wednesday, after the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. But the scene turned chaotic after 8:30 p.m., when protesters went from Marshall Park to the Epicentre dining and entertainment complex and the Omni on Trade Street.
That’s the White area, fam.
Businesses in the Epicentre closed hours earlier in anticipation of the protests. Police also blocked off streets as the situation deteriorated outside the Omni.
Several hundred protesters had gathered at the Omni before tear gas began scattering the crowd.
Protesters blocked Trade and Tryon streets at about 8 p.m. and then moved to the Epicentre.
Hours earlier, a group of two dozen protesters stood silently in front of the Bank of America Tower at the same intersection. They held signs reading “Black Lives Matter” and “Stop Killing Us.”
We just wanna read books in peace, muffugguh! Ain’t did nothing!
UPDATE 01:25 GMT

Could be an overstatement.
Original article follows.
A cop just committed regicide on the Fox 10 livestream in Charlotte!
I don’t have the clip yet, but here’s the stream.
Rewind it like 17 minutes if you see this in the next one minutes.
There is a delay, so they cut the actual death scene. Then brought some random Black female on to explain the clear fact that he ain’t even did nothing.
No news outlets are covering this yet (besides Fox 10 itself, of course).
You heard it here first!
He went to the riot to read a book and they done killed his po blaggazz!
