2:00 am
5:00 a.m. in the east. there's a developing situation if charlotte, north carolina after plus shot and killed a black man. that black man is 43-year-old keith lamont scott. you can see pictures of what's been going on all night. police in riot gear to disperse protesters. some of those protesters throwing rocks and water bottles. at least a dozen officers were injured. we just got word that seven or more protesters, or bystanders taken to the hospital as well. you can see some of the protesters lit a fire on the road there. there was looting and trucks forced to stop in place. again, the dwindling but pockets of activity there. we're joined by brynn gingras. >> there's more we'll likely hear today with the shooting of
2:01 am
keith lamont scott. both the officer and victim are african-american. listen to the police chief describe what led up to the shooting. >> at this point. all we know, they were in the apartment complex parking lot. this subject gets out with a weapon. they engage him, and one of the officers felt a lethal threat and fired his weapon because of that. >> so the warrants weren't for the man, but we're not sure that this man was connected? >> absolutely. they were not specific to the deceased. we don't know if there's a connection with the deceased with the suspect. >> that explanation, though, not sitting well with protesters. >> but as far as my child, my nephew, i am concerned, i am worried about them. something has to be done. whether it's our city leaders. whether it's our state leaders. these presidential candidates that are coming on to the scene, something has to be done. there was a terrorist, new jersey, new york, he was taken alive. they say they wanted to question
2:02 am
him. so, because of you wanting to question him, does his life mean more than our black men across the nation? it doesn't make any sense? >> that is a comment i've heard echoed on social media all over the place. officer vinson has been placed on paid administrative leave while the shooting is investigated. scott was a father of seven. they disputed they had a gun. they say he was actually in a car reading a book waiting for a family member to return home from school that day. i'm sure we'll learn a lot more exactly what will be learned in the investigation. >> we just saw a photo of keith lamont scott, 43 years old. getting to learn more information about him. as you say, a father of seven. brynn gingras, thank you so much. let's go to charlotte, adam rhew, the editor for charlotte
2:03 am
magazine. you tell us in recent hours it's calmer than it was is 11:00, or 12:00 in the morning. >> yeah, christine, it's calmed down there were true peaks of intensity between protesters and police. one, roughly around 11:00 last night. the other maybe around 2:00, 2:30 this morning. and it has settle issed down a little bit. that first wave of intensity came as protesters were gathered on the road outside of the apartment complex where the shooting happened. and they engaged with police, at first peacefully, and there were a few people in the crowd that started throwing bottles and rocks and other items at officers. you know, to the warnings of some of the other people in the crowd who told them not to do so. but nonetheless, that continued and then a little bit before 11:00, police used tear gas for the first time to try to break up the crowd.
2:04 am
they did that several more times over the course of the next half hour, 45 minutes. the crowd settled down a little bit. dispersed. and then got back together. again, so, some time after midnight, maybe between 12:00 and 1:00, again, sort of the next wave of intensity started around 12:30. when some of the protesters actually walked out on the interstate through charlotte and blocked traffic on all of the lanes of the interstate. that's when some of the looting that you guys talked about earlier, people actually looting things out of the trucks on the interstate. there were a couple fires that started. the s.w.a.t. team came in as they used tear gas to break up the crowd. and i would say within the last hour, we were told kind of the interstate had been cleared. at least of people. there's still plenty of debris out there. and then the crowd kind of broke up into several different smaller groups.
2:05 am
as you said, it's quieter now than it was certainly, three, four, five hours ago. >> again, we're just looking at some of these pictures. fires, the looting. you know, the kicking of trucks and whatnot on the road. adam, you're from charlotte, give us a sense of the relationship there between the community and police right now. >> well, i will tell you that historically charlotte has been, from what we typically call -- charlotte is a nice city. people get along. there's been generally a positive relationship between police and the public there. our relatively new police chief is a big supporter of community policing and has watched the initiatives that have gone over very well. however, in the last several years, there have been several incidents that have involved shootings by police of citizens in this community. and that has certainly started to erode some of the trust that has been built up. some of the goodwill in this
2:06 am
community, for the police and the public. with perhaps the most high-profile case was two or three years ago, i guess now three years ago, when a white police officer shot an unarmed black man. a young man who the police officer believed was a threat. the district attorney did not file -- i'm sorry, the court decide not to move forward with charges against the officer. and there was some concern, when that happened, when that was announced, i believe that was late last summer, early last summer. when that happened there was some concern about violence then. and really the community and the police did a great job of letting people express their concern, their frustration with perhaps how the legal process turned out. and the police and the public and the city government gave folks a venue and a place to do that respectfully and place that. and really, the weekend passed
2:07 am
without major incident. so, while there's tension and there still continues to be tension. i think a lot of folks when they heard reports of this shooting yesterday afternoon, thought that maybe that's what we would see. there would be protests. that people would have a place to express their anger but that it wouldn't turn violent. i guess that's one of the things that we would say charlotte is not the type of city where violence tends to take hold. i think if people were watching this on television last knew, following it on social media and early morning hours today, that's one of the big takeaways for me. the surprising and reaction that people had over the violence they were seeing in their city. >> adam rhew, thank you so much for calling in and bringing your reporting and first hand experience there. adam rhew, thanks so much. >> again, as adam was saying, this is only dying down over the last hour or so, these protests,
2:08 am
this looting, this anger that you're seeing taking place all night in charlotte. >> call of this coming on the heels of a fatal shooting of a black man in tulsa. authorities saying pcp was found in the vehicle. he may have been on some drug, and crutcher and his family say they are looking into that claim. it shows his hands up there as he walks towards his suv. his hands are up there. we get the latest from cnn's anan cabrera. >> reporter: john and christine, outrage is growing with protesters gathering outside of police station calling for the arrest of officer betty shelby who opened fire killing 40-year-old terence crutcher. his family calling the video leading up to his shooting devastating. saying there was no evidence, reason for her to open fire. now, there are two separate
2:09 am
investigations as to whether or not the shooting was justified. first, the criminal investigation by the tulsa police homicide unit. there's also a federal civil rights probe that was sparked after the department of justice officials saw the video. the video from the police dash camera, as well as the police helicopter, both videos showing terence crutcher with his arms in the air as he approaches his suv. but in neither video can you see officer shelby open fire. that is the crucial moment. and the big question mark here. officer shelby's attorney telling us, leading up to that moment, terence crutcher had refused to obey several commands. and that he reached into his vehicle which is why officer shelby opened fire, fearing he may be grabbing for a weapon. now, we know there was no weapon. he was unarmed. and there was no weapon in the vehicle. as outrage continues to grow in this community and around the nation, the police chief is asking people to withhold judgment until the
2:10 am
investigations are complete. and he vows justice will prevail. john and christine. >> thanks so much for that, ana. >> we'll have the very latest on the protests happening automatic night in charlotte right after the break. also ahead -- donald trump, he's making the case for profiling. he says that's the best way to deal with terror. some new reaction and new case in the trump campaign. that's next. ♪ everything kids touch at school sticks with them.

2:16 am
the editor of cnn politics digital zachary wolf. good morning, zach. we've seen the pictures from north carolina this evening. i mean, clearly this issue of police and community policing and this conflict between police and black communities is front and center, again. how do you think it will guide the campaign trail today? >> well, i think, you know, we saw hillary clinton weigh in on twitter yesterday about the tulsa, oklahoma, shooting. i can only imagine that there will be more of that today. you know, as people start to learn what happened. in charlotte. it's certainly something they've been talking about, trump has been quick to defend police in recent weeks, although i'm not sure he's talked specifically about the tulsa incident. and certainly not the charlotte one. so these have been thing thabs popping up periodically on the campaign trail as they happened unfortunately in the u.s. over the last couple months. >> it's really interesting,
2:17 am
donald trump was in north carolina yesterday and he was talking about race in ways that a lot of people on the ground there thought was controversial. listen to a little of what donald trump said. >> our african-american community are absolutely in the worst shape than they've ever been in before. ever, ever, ever. you take a look at the inner cities. you get no education. you get no jobs. you get shot walking down the street. they're worse -- i mean, honestly, places like afghanistan are safer than some of our inner cities. and i say to the african-american communities and i think it's resonating, because you see what's happening with my poll numbers, with african-americans. they're going like high. >> so trump was criticized in some quarters for talking about the fact that life for african-americans is worse than it's ever been in north carolina. of course with slavery and jim
2:18 am
crow laws and speaking before largely a white audience. but, zach, he was addressing racial issues the very same day that the shooting happened and we saw the protests happen overnight. >> that's right, president obama spoke at the black caucus dinner. he mentioned that trump has been talking about these themes for a while, and he offered a very specific rebuke of trump. mentioning those things you said, slavery, jim crow laws. i think democrats are inching to have that argument with trump about the african-american situation in the country. i'm not sure he's claiming that his poll numbers with african-americans are rising. we'll have to see if that's true. but i would highly doubt it. but it's clear that there's this really difficult hard situation in america, and it's going to play out on the campaign. >> zach, real quick, front page. top of the world, "washington post" this morning, trump used
2:19 am
his charities moneys to celts his legal disputes. there's a reporter over there at the "post" that has been digged into the donald trump foundation. how do you think this will play today. >> first, kudos to "the washington post" for uncovering this. the first thing they uncovered a week or so ago is that trump had been giving money from his own foundation. and now it turns out that he's using money from the foundation he's not giving money to settle lawsuits for his for profit businesses. so the legality thing is probably something we'll have to look into. but, you know, just the idea of settling these things with your charity is something he'll have to answer for. >> it's called self-dealing, apparently, in the charity world which is a phrase i did not know. and it is not legal if knack that is what happened there. it will be interesting to see what happens today. >> exactly. the. >> the trump contain goes after

2:32 am
>> good morning. the investigation just getting started. the charlotte mayor is really calling for calm and an investigation into the shooting of 43-year-old keith lamont scott by officer brantley vinson. listen to what the chief said led up to shooting. >> at this point, all we know they're in the apartment complex parking lot. this subject gets out with a weapon. they engage him. one of the officers felt a lethal threat and fired his weapon because of that. >> so, the warrants weren't for the man but we're not sure if this man was connected? >> absolutely. they were not specific to the deceased. we don't know if there's a connection to the deceased to the suspect. >> that explanation, though, not sitting well with protesters. >> but as far as my child, my nephews, i am concerned, i'm worried about them. something has to be done, whether it's our city leaders,
2:33 am
whether it's our state leaders. these presidential candidates that are coming on to the scene. something has to be done. there was a terrorist, new jersey, new york, he was taken alive. they say they wanted to question him. so, because of you wanting to question him, does his life mean more than our black men across the nation? it doesn't make any sense. >> certainly, a lot of frustration. officer vinson has been played on paid administrative leave while the investigation. we have pictures of keith lamont scott. he's a father of seven. they dispute the idea that he had a gun. they say he was sitting in his car, reading a book when officers came up. >> one of his daughters saying he was waiting for the school bus. >> to be clear, we expect to hear from a lot of people in news conferences including the police. >> i think 10:00 a.m. the next news conference. earlier, we spoke with adam
2:34 am
rhew, associate editor for charlotte magazine. he was discussing the protest. he said he saw seven protesters taken to the hospital. it was a busy night. it recently ended with very few protesters still on the streets. he explained to us how in this city, in charlotte, really no one expected the demonstrations to take the violent turn they did. >> charlotte is a nice city. people get along. there's been generally a positive relationship between police answd the public there. the relatively new police chief is a big supporter of community policing and has launched some initiatives that have gone over very well. however in the last several years there have been several incidents that involved shootings of by police of citizens in this community. and that has certainly started to erode some of the trust that's built up, some the goodwill that exists in this community for the police and the
2:35 am
public. perhaps the most high-profile case was two or three years ago, i guess now three years ago, when a white police officer shot an unarmed black man. a young man, who the police officer believed was a threat. the district attorney did not file -- or i'm sorry, the court decided not to move forward with charges against the officer. and there was some concern, when that happened, when that was announced, i believe that was late last summer or early last summer, when that happened, there was some concern about violence then. and really, the community and the police did a great job of letting people express their concern, their frustration with perhaps how the legal process turned out. and the police and the public and the city government gave folks a venue and a place to do that respectfully and peacefully. and really, the incident passed without major incident.
2:36 am
so while there's tension and still continues to be tension, i think a lot of folks when they heard reports of this shooting yesterday afternoon thought that maybe that's what we would hear. that there would be protests, that people would have a place to express their anger, but that it wouldn't turn violent. >> in fact, it did turn violent. we saw the protests overnight. the fires on the streets there. a great deal of frustration. it all comes on the heels of the fatal police shooting and unarmed shooting of a black man in tulsa, oklahoma. police say pcp was found in the vehicle of terence crutcher. attorneys for crutcher's family says they're looking into that. but they say that's a situation how not to handle someone in that situation. dama dash cam video shows crutcher with his hands up being shot as he walked to his suv. i want to get the latest from cnn's ana cabrera.
2:37 am
>> reporter: john and christine, outrage is growing with protesters gathering outside of police station calling for the arrest of officer betty shelby who opened fire killing 40-year-old terence crutcher. his family calling the video leading up to his shooting devastating. saying there was no evidence, reason for her to open fire. now, there are two separate investigations into whether or not the shooting was justified. first, the criminal investigation by the tulsa police homicide unit. there's also a federal civil rights probe that was sparked after the department of justice officials saw the video. the video from the police dash camera, as well as the police helicopter, both videos showing terence crutcher with his arms in the air as he approaches his suv. but in neither video can you see officer shelby open fire. that is the crucial moment. and the big question mark here. officer shelby's attorney telling us, leading up to that moment, terence crutcher had refused to obey several commands.
2:38 am
and that he reached into his vehicle which is why officer shelby opened fire, fearing he may be grabbing for a weapon. now, we know there was no weapon. he was unarmed. and there was no weapon in the vehicle. as outrage continues to grow in this community and around the nation, the police chief is asking people to withhold judgment until the investigations are complete. and he vows justice will prevail. john and christine. >> all right. thanks so much for that, ana cabrera, we'll have "your money" right after this break. ♪ the highly advanced audi a4. ♪
