Brentley Vinson

Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray said Wednesday that Officer Brentley Vinson acted lawfully when he shot Keith Lamont Scott.

Charlotte police claim Scott was armed, but his family says he was perched in his car, reading a book while he waited for his son after school.

Overnight, protesters blocked off several streets and a portion of I-85 near the scene of the crime, rallying for justice.
