Charlotte Demonstrator Shot In Head During Protest Chaos, Dies In Hospital
Justin Carr, 26, the protester that was shot in the head during Wednesday night’s Charlotte protest, passed away late Thursday evening.
Carr was shot as protesters clashed with police in riot gear lined arm-in-arm protecting the Omni Hotel at about 8.30pm. No arrests have been made in Carr’s death, but a homicide investigation has been launched.
City officials say Carr was not shot by an officer, but some protesters have claimed that he was wounded by a cop.
Police Chief Kerr Putney says the detectives are determined to find who fired the fatal shots.
