In the midst of the tensions in Charlotte, North Carolina, following the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, the moment a man wearing a ‘Free Hugs’ T-shirt began hugging a row of riot police has been captured on video.
Keith Scott's family has released a video of police officers fatally shooting him that was recorded by his wife, who was talking to police from a distance. It was released to NBC News after law enforcement once again refused to release their footage.
Protesters marched through the streets of uptown Charlotte for the third night in a row Thursday, with local and state police, along with National Guard troops, staking out positions in anticipation of more violence. A curfew has been set for midnight.
