quite different. >> the officers gave loud, clear, verbal commands to drop the weapon. as the officers continue to drop, he stepped out, posing a threat to the officers. >> now, there is police video of the shooting, but officials are refusing to release it until after the investigation is complete. the officer who fired the fatal shot was identified as bradley vincent, in plain clothes at the time, and he was not wearing a body camera. >> two nights of violence, what do leaders do now? >> we are joined by phone now to talk about the law enforcement response, and, steve, this morning, the big question is, why not release that video? what do you think? >> caller: i think it's a lot more complicated as far as the investigation and they don't want to put something out there like the video that could be interpreted in many different
investigation as tight as possible so when they release it, they'll be able to release almost everything, which will explain what really happened, and that's probably causing the delay. >> and we should mention, you're looking at live pictures here in the early morning hours. our chopper from wsoc, our affiliate in charlotte, has been flying all through the early morning hours to see the police activity there. this particular one near the downtown basketball arena. that was one of the things, the mentioned, their store looted. steve, a lot of stores and businesses looted. this was just all, like, chaos on the streets of charlotte. >> caller: yeah. i mean, in is something that's just unfortunate. i mean, there's only so much law enforcement can do. you get people that want to act out like this, they will be able to do it. it's even harder when you have a lot of people doing it because now it's a matter of, you know, who are you going to go arrest?
kind of line that you see when there's that type of activity, and they have to start containing the situation as they, then, try to move the crowds and start to peel people off and try to arrest them if they can determine who committed such crimes. >> steve, whether you believe the family's version of the events or the police officer's version of events, what it's indicative of is a fracture in the trust between the community and police department. how do you fix that when things get to that point? >> caller: well, biggest problem, that fracture, that going on nationwide. that's one of the biggest problems that i've seen the last year is when you do have police shootings, and you're going to have use of force and you're going to have use of deadly force, but you have to have good communication between police and community because of those situations, but when you have this type of breakdown, and when you have it all across the country, that's a big problem.
local government, state government, but with our federal government and the white house. it's going to take everybody in government to solve this problem. it's just not going to happen. it is happening everywhere. >> talk about leadership at the local level for right now because after seeing the violence on the first night, it doesn't take a genius to anticipate and know there probably was going to be some sort of protest, and it might have gotten out of control again. why not institute a curfew ahead of that? >> caller: you know, that is something that i'm sure they are looking at why they did what they did and, you know, why didn't they do something different because of the fact that, you know, baltimore, ferguson, those are fairly recent. those just happened. even dallas, and then, you know, attacks on cops in baton rouge. these are things that are fresh in our memories. i would have expected at least a little more, you know, okay, what are tools we can use, what

breaking news this morning on "world news now" -- chaotic night again in charlotte. >> protesters are clashing with police on the city streets. one protester is on life shot police say after being shot by another civilian. they question what happened. officers are also injured. we are live at the in tulsa, residents searching for answers as we learn more about the deadly shooting in that city. what may have led to that critical moment when an officer fatally shot terrence crutcher and why his family is critical of the current investigation. later, those headlines are affecting the race for the white house. hear what both donald trump and hillary clinton have to say about the recent violence and why one of the answers could be a nationwide stop and frisk policy.
>> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." good morning, everyone on a very busy thursday morning. i'm kendis gibson. >> i'm diane macedo. the second night of violence unfolds in shar let, following a fatal police shooting. >> it was quite a violent scene. yet again, police in riot gear clashing with protesters this time near an upscale hotel in popular part of charlotte called uptown. one person is in life sup we're told by someone else. at least four officers were injured. the governor just hours ago ordering that the national guard and state troopers take to the streets of charlotte. abc's jim ryan is in charlotte and joins us now with what the situation is in these early morning hours. jim? >> reporter: good morning. no sign of the national guard here on the streets yet in the uptown section. you'll find gatherings of police officers, city police officers,
talking with a few of the demonstrators who earlier in the evening were taunting them, gathering in large groups, and now smaller groups for conversations, if you will, about what's happening in the city for the last 24 hours, and as you said, the governor has declared a state of emergency that will move the national guard here into the area, but as of right now, things have calmed down substantially. kendis? >> jim, as we take a look at what some of the scenes were you saw plenty of these clashes, they utilized tear gas and seems to be quite a bit of looting that took place at many venues and stores. describe to me some of the violence you saw there. >> reporter: yeah. throughout downtown you'll find signs of what happened earlier today. painted windows here at a hotel parking garage, smashed windows in some other parts of city and evidence of the tear gas that was lobbed or the flash bangs
to disperse these crowds. that rather violent situation involving clashes between police officers and protesters has died down quite a bit here in the last few hours, but very tense times for a couple hours just before midnight. >> jim, we saw violent yesterday and we're seeing it yet again today. what plans are in effect to try to prevent this from happening tomorrow? >> reporter: well, i think the governor's plan is attempting to do that, bringing in the national guard, more resources north carolina, to try to simply put boots on the ground to be ready if large-scale demonstrations happened. i think they are trying to take a page from what happened in ferguson, baltimore, other places where these things are going on, trying to learn the lessons, what to do, and essentially whatnot to do, diane. >> jim, obviously, one of the big points of contention here is
in this circumstance. is there anymore from law enforcement in terms of what information they plan to release on what happened yesterday? >> reporter: no, none at all. the police essentially have done their information release that they are going to do. certainly more will be coming out as investigations continue, and as people have lawyers speaking for them. that's what we'll hear from the family members, more about that side of the story the next few days. >> jim, really quickly here, you were there in ferguson, i was there as well for the anniversary, saw the violence that erupted in ferguson. you've been to how would you say this night of unrest, this second night of unrest compared to those other situations you've been to? >> reporter: well, i think the response has been sort of measured by the police here. again, i think they tried to learn from the previous incidents of police violence and the response from communities and tried to tone it down somewhat. tried to hold back the response somewhat and be measured in order to keep things from escalating. i think that's sort of the response you're seeing here. >> all right.
p us after another violent night of unrest in charlotte. stay safe. thank you for joining us. and officials so far have not released police body camera video of the shooting that touched off the violence. >> steve goe nez mez, abc news contributor and former fbi special agent in charge joining us now with more on the law enforcement's response and, steve, one of the things we've been discussing, since last night, you know, police say there was a gun, why not immediately show photos or video and try to tamper down the situation immediately? >> caller: well, that usually indicates that the investigation is a little more complicated than we all think. i would expect that they would try to get that information out to the public as soon as possible because, clearly, that's one of the motivations for these protests and violence and destruction to property. i have to believe that the reason they are not putting it out there is because there's a little more to it and getting it out there without giving full explanation how the
probably going to be problematic for them. >> steve, we also heard some blowback in terms of, you know, not having implemented a curfew for tonight given we saw violence the night before as well. any thoughts on what should have been done differently here and what should be done for tomorrow? >> caller: well, i think that as jim said, they were probably measured -- they probably realized that if they come out too strong, do a curfew and do some other measures that it could exacerbate the whole situation. now, it seems like they did a fairly good job containing, even though there was some violation, property damage, and so on, but i would have to believe that now that they're bringing in the national guard, bringing in other agencies, that they're going to consider, i would hope, a curfew and the full scale of techniques they can use to kind of contain these situations and not result in a riot like we saw in baltimore and ferguson. >> steve, you've seen situations like this firsthand. you were fairly new agent with the fbi when the rodney king
you see the way the baltimore cops -- sorry, the cops in charlotte are handling this and authorities there handling this, and you think what? >> caller: well, in los angeles, it was a very weak response. it was almost like the chief back at that time ak we esed to go ahead and burn up the city. and there was a lot of debate about that. i think in charlotte, they have the advantage of learning from what happened in ferguson and baltimore and i think they are being a lot more proactive in balancing not making the communities feel like they are coming in heavy handed, but at the same time, they have to protect the community, and i think they are now moving -- i think today will be seen they were moving the group to a different area, trying to take better control of the situation. hopefully tomorrow we'll see a
between trying to protect the community and, you know, wanting to answer questions, but also not wanting to release too much information and also not wanting to seem like you're trying to subdue the protests that are going on? what goes into that decision, and how do you ride that line? >> caller: well, the chief of police and the command staff for the different regions there where everything's going on, they are not only in communication with the sergeants and lieutenants and people supervising the troops on the ground, but they are also in communication with the city officials, with the other agencies that are stake holders in this whole situation and probably the state government. they are coordinating the strategy on how they are going to deal with this situation, and that's going to flow all the way down to the sergeants and the lieutenants, whether they're going to be measured or whether they're going to be aggressively come in there and -- i found it interesting that they used flash bangs. flash bangs are concussion type grenades. they are not going to hurt anybody unless the flash bang hits you or is right in front of
they clearly are pulling out all of the tools in the tool chest in order to try to get the crowd to comply and do what they need them to do. >> quickly, steve, do you think any of this impacts how quickly the police release more information? >> caller: absolutely. they are under an incredible amount of pressure to -- if not photos, but preliminary assessment of the shooting to the public. they realize that's the key point. now depending on what the investigation comes up with and their result, the public may not like it. it may make the protests and what we're seeing here yet even worse. that's why we may not have released anything yet. they want to make sure they crossed all the ts, nipped everything together, make sure it's nice and neat to where it's well-explained to the public when it comes out. >> all right. steve gomez for us.
half hour as we, of course, monitor the breaking situation. coming up, we'll get to the rest of this morning's headlines, and there are plenty, including new details in the other deadly police shooting in tulsa. we'll hear from the deceased family explaining one of the reasons they're fed up. what we learned from the alleged new york bomber and the search for the two mystery men police are hoping to get new information from. you're watching "world news now." you may think you can put off checking out your but now is a good time to get the ball rolling. keep in mind, medicare only covers about eighty percent of part b medical costs. the rest is up to you. that's where aarp medicare supplement insurance plans insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company come in. like all standardized medicare supplement insurance plans,

>> we know he was up armed. we know he was a little slow. we knew he didn't commit a crime like the new york bomber did who is still alive. >> crutcher recently served four years in prison, but his sister says he was starting to turn his life around. both presidential candidates are weighing in on the fatal shootings. hillary clinton said we have to do better and noted two more names are now added to a long list of african-americans killed by police officers. donaldru incidents tragic, addressing an audience of black pastors near cleveland. trump said he was troubled by the shooting in tulsa and questioned the officer's actions. >> did she get scared? was she choking? what happened? >> it's unbearable and it needs to become tolerable. >> clinton saying there's a lot we don't know yet about what happened and both expressed appreciation for police officers. just hours after talking about the shootings, trump called for the expanded use of stop and frisk, controversial police
suspicious. trump said the policy worked incredibly well in new york city when he was asked about stopping violence in the black community during a town hall. in 2013, a federal judge ruled that stop and frisk can be discriminatory against minorities. several new developments in the bombing information. the fbi is looking for two men seen on surveillance video taking one of the manhattan bombs out of the a piece of luggage age leaving with the luggage. they say they won't be arrested them. video recovered from phone of the sister of the bombing suspect show him testing bomb making material. there's good news for tens of millions of drivers across the south and east. the nation's largest gas pipeline is again in operation following the repair of a major leak in alabama. colonial pipeline said it will take a couple days. exxon mobil will pay $1 million for environmental damages caused
