Black Lives Matter protests held outside NFL game in Charlotte

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WDRB) -- A Black Lives Matter protest is held outside of an NFL game in Charlotte.

Hundreds gathered outside of Bank of America Stadium before the North Carolina Panthers game today.

It comes after days of protests across the city after a black man was shot and killed by police last week.

Charlotte police released the body cam and dash cam footage of the shooting yesterday-- but many say it's still hard to tell if Keith Scott was armed before he was shot by officers.

"There is no definitive evidence in this video as to whether or not there is an object in his hands, and if there is, what that object is," Justin Bamberg, Scott family attorney, said.

Yesterday, police also released a photo of a gun they say they found at the scene.
