from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning, everyone, a busy thursday morning. i'm kendis gibson. >> i'm diane macedo. a state of emergency in north carolina as the second nights of violence unfolds in charlotte following a police shooting. >> police in riot gear, clashing with protesters near and upscale hotel in downtown area, in a popular part of charlotte call uptown. one person being shot in the head by someone else, and four officers injured. the governor, hours ago, ordering that the national guard and state troopers take to the streets of charlotte. abc's jim ryan is in charlotte 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. there's gatherings of police
3:02 am
in some cases, standing around, 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 declared a state of emergency that moves the national guard here into the area, but as of right now, things calmed substantially. kendis? >> jim, as we take a what some of the saecenes were from earlier in the day, clashes, 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 sawthere. >> reporter: yeah. throughout downtown you'll find signs of what happened earlier today. windows here at a hotel parking garage, smashed windows in other parts of the city, and evidence of the tear gas that was lobbed
3:03 am
police tried to disperse these crowds. rather violent situation involving clashes between police officers and protesters has died down quite here in the last few hours, but very tense time for a couple hours, even before midnight. >> we saw violence yesterday and seeing it 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, bri from departments around the area, the county and state of north carolina, to try to simply put boots on the ground to be ready in large scale demonstrations happen. 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 lrn the lessons, what to do, and especially whatnot to do, diane. >> jim, obviously, one of the big points of contention here is whether or not there was a a gun in in circumstance.
3:04 am
information they plan to release on what happen 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. >> really quickly here, you were there in ferguson, i was there as well for the anniversary, saw the violence in how would you say the second night of unrest compares 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.
3:05 am
us after another violence 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 gomez, 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, especially 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, tt 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 areot putting it out there is because there's a little more to it than getting it out there without giving full explanation how the investigation's proceeding is
3:06 am
>> 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 other measures, that could exacerbate the situation. now, it fairly good job containing, even though there was some violation, property damage, and so on, but i would have to believe that now they bring in the national guard to bring in other agencies, that they are going to consider, i would hope, a curfew and the full scale of techniques use to contain these situations and not result in riot like we saw in baltimore and ferguson. >> steve, you've seen situations like this firsthand.
3:07 am
riots erupted out there in the streets of los angeles. 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, back at that time, acquiesce to whatever th people in the streets were going to do, just go ahead and burn up the city, and there was a lot of debate about that m i think in charlotte, they have the advantage of 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 removing the group to a different area, trying to take better control of the situation. hopefully tomorrow, we'll see a lot better response. >> steve, talk about what goes into that? how do you ride that line
3:08 am
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 supervising the troops on the ground, but in touch with the stake holders in the 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 lieutenants, whether they will be measured or whether they are going to aggressively come in there. 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
3:09 am
you'll sustain damage. they clearly are pulling out all of the tools in the tool chest in order 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 -- photos, but the public. they realize that's the key point. depending what the investigation coming up with as a result, the public may not like it, protest, and what we see here be even worse. that's why nay have not 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, thanks, steve, talk to you in the next half hour as

3:33 am
ways. they want to try to get the 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 executive of the hornets 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,
