5:32 pm
street. shelby's version is that she feared crutcher was armed and high on pcp. >> hold traffic. i've got a subject that won't show me his hands. >> reporter: despite the fact crutcher had his hands up and was walking away -- >> he's got his hands up there for her now. >> reporter: -- shelby fired that fatal shot when she says he reached inside his car. attorneys for crutcher's family say that would have been impossible. >> the window was up, so, how can he be reaching into the car if the window is up and there is blood on the glass? >> reporter: prosecutors say shelby acted unreasonably by escalating the situation. >> officer shelby, although now charged, is presumed to be innocent until a judge or a jury determines otherwise. >> reporter: tonight, crutcher's family, who believes his death was racially motivated, said this. >> while we are pleased to learn that the officer who senselessly killed my beloved twin brother will face criminal charges for her reckless act, we understand
5:33 pm
that nothing will bring him back. >> and clayton sandell is with us tonight. clayton, what next now for the officer? >> reporter: hey, david, good evening. yeah, tulsa police tell us that they are going to wait until after officer shelby's trial to determine whether or not she's going to be fired. but there is one important distinction tonight. officer shelby is now on leave, without pay. david? >> clayton sandell leading us off tonight. clayton, thank you. and as i mentioned at the top, the state of emergency in charlotte at this hour. more of the national guard moving in late today. protests there turning violent, after a deadly police shooting there. riot police moving in through the streets, lobbing tear gas to dispel the crowds. tonight, we have learned the police have now shared the video of the deadly shooting with the family. and abc's eva pilgrim is in charlotte. >> we need revolution. >> reporter: a state of emergency as a third night of protests gets under way in charlotte. the national guard now in place, ready after the violent scenes over the past two nights.

and those officers saw that gun in his hand? >> yes. >> reporter: police say they will not release their video of the shooting until the investigation is over. but the family of scott is reviewing it tonight. >> the video does not give me absolutete definitive visual evidence that -- that would confirm that a person is pointing a gun. when taken into totality of all the other evidence, it supports what we've heard and the version of the truth that we gave about the circumstances that happened. >> reporter: david, those protests under way tonight. some 400 national guardsmen in charlotte tonight. hoping to keep this city safe. david? >> all right, eva, thank you so much. and just moments ago here, an abc news exclusive. president obama, one-on-one with our robin roberts. she asked the president what he makes of the violent protests, the growing tension, and how to bridge the divide with police. >> reporter: what we have seen
5:36 pm
recently in charlotte, north carolina, young people rising up and showing their frustration in a different way. when you and the rest of the world sees that, what goes through your mind? >> well, i think it's important to separate out the pervasive sense of frustration among a lot of african-americans about shootings of people and the sense that justice is not always, you know, color blind. the way we change the system requires us to be able to reach out and engage the broader american community. and that requires being peaceful. that requires being thoughtful about, what are the specific reforms you're looking for?
5:37 pm
the overwhelming majority of people who have been concerned about police/community relations doing it the right way. every once in awhile, you see folks doing it the wrong way. >> much more with president obama on "good morning america." and in a moment, right here, what he said when robin asked what hillary clinton should do on that debate stage with donald trump monday night. what the president said, in a moment. that is where we turn next tonight, to the race for president. four days until that debate. and tonight, right here, four key states, two very different stories. hillary clinton ahead in colorado, 44 to trump's 42, within the margin of error. clinton leading in virginia, 45 to 39. but it is trump who is ahead in georgia, 47 to clinton's 40, and in iowa tonight, trump is ahead, 44 to clinton's 37. a very tight race in key battlegrounds. and donald trump tonight trying to reach out to african-american voters. and this evening, now clarifying what he said about stop and frisk. here's abc's tom llamas. >> reporter: tonight, with the
5:38 pm
issue of race red-hot, donald trump heaping praise on police, but also, offered this -- >> we must do everything we can to ensure that they are properly trained, that they respect all members of the public, and that any wrongdoing is always and it will be, by them, vigorously addressed. >> reporter: but then, while speaking about the protesters in charlotte, this off-prompter ad lib. >> and if you're not aware, drugs are a very, very big factor in what you're watching on television at night. >> reporter: trump is trying to expand his base. right now, 91% of his supporters are white. >> it's very divided, our country. it just seems that there's a lack of spirit between the white and the black. there's a lack of spirit. there's a lack of something. something's going on that's bad, and what's going on between police and others is getting worse. >> reporter: however, trump is now promoting a policy that's highly unpopular in the black
5:39 pm
community. >> there's been a lot of violence in the black community. i want to know what would you do to help stop that violence, you know, black-on-black crime. >> right. well, one of the things i'd do, ricardo, is, i would do stop and frisk. i see what's going on here, i see what's going on in chicago, i think stop and frisk -- in new york city, it was so incredible, the way it worked. >> reporter: stop and frisk is a controversial policing method that many say encourages racial profiling of pedestrians. in new york last year alone, 83% of people stopped by police were black or latino. the nypd largely abandoned the tactic, and a federal judge in new york ruled it unconstitutional. just hours after trump made his comments, his campaign tried to clarify, insisting he was only talking about implementing stop and frisk in chicago, not nationwide. >> i was really referring to chicago with stop and frisk, they asked me about chicago. >> reporter: as trump tries to build bridges to the black

5:41 pm
abc. as i mentioned, robin did ask the president, any advice for hillary clinton, with up to 100 million people expected to watch? >> reporter: it's monday night. it's game time. secretary clinton's about to take the stage with the debate. what would you want to say to her before walking out for that first debate? >> be yourself and explain what motivates you. because i will tell you, i've gotten to know hillary, and seen her work and seen her in tough times and in good times. she's in this for the right reasons. i think there's a reason why we haven't had a woman president before, and, so, she's having to break down some barriers. there's a level of mistrust and a caricature of her that just doesn't jibe with who i know. this person that cares deeply about kids. >> robin's entire interview with president obama, tomorrow morning right here on "good morning america." the news continues here tonight, and to the other
