Curfew declared in USA city as unrest continues

Clinton, Trump weigh-in on fatal Charlotte shooting City officials provide updates on protests, shooting investigation

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton postponed a visit to Charlotte, North Carolina today after the city's mayor asked both major candidates to delay visits, her campaign announced.

"We have made a decision to postpone Sunday's trip as not to impact the City's resources", communications director Jennifer Palmieri wrote in the statement.

Clintons said on a call with the mayor of Charlotte this week that 'too many Black Americans have lost their lives and too many feel that their lives are disposable, ' according to a pool report of the call.

Although Donald Trump was also considering a visit to Charlotte after the first presidential debate, his campaign also abandoned their plans.

Protests erupted after Keith Lamont Scott, 43, was fatally shot Tuesday afternoon by a black plainclothes officer outside an apartment complex where police were serving a warrant.

Clinton announced earlier Friday that she would travel to Charlotte in the aftermath of the shooting of a black man by a Charlotte police officer.

"And what I want to say is that we appreciate the support of candidates, we appreciate that they are concerned about Charlotte", Roberts said.

The City of Charlotte tried to return to normal Friday morning following a third night of protests across the city.

Messages left with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's campaigns seeking response were not immediately returned. "In the meantime her prayers are with the people of Charlotte during these hard days", she added.

Scott's wife released her cellphone video of the incident on Friday, which includes audio of her shouting "don't shoot him" and saying that he didn't have a gun. Putney said that the department would not be releasing the video to the media or public.

A curfew was imposed in the United States city of Charlotte as protests against the police continued after a black man was shot dead.

"I understand the community's desire (to see the footage) and I echo the view of our police chief that the videos are inconclusive", she told CNN. We must ensure justice & work to bridge divides.' The tweet was signed 'H, ' meaning it came from Clinton directly.

Charlotte's mayor and police chief held a press conference to update the state of the city after the recent unrest.
