After family members stoked angry crowds by saying that Keith Lamont Scott was holding a book when he was shot, and not a gun as the black police chief explained, mobs of black youth began looting, rioting, and attacking police & civilians.
One person has been shot by another rioter tonight. The person shot has died even though police attempted to get him medical attention.
