Man shot during Charlotte protests has died, reports say


The man shot during Wednesday night’s demonstrations in Charlotte has died, according to Charlotte news outlets.

Justin Carr was 26, WBTV reported.

His mother, Ann Carr, posted this note on her Facebook page early Thursday morning:

“Don’t know how to feel! Don’t know what to feel! Just feeling numb! Not going to ask why me, just need Prayer for my baby boy right now! As I lay by his side and Praying real hard because my baby is fighting for his Life! Please if your gonna protest do it peacefully! My baby was shot in the head for no apparent reason! I don’t know who did this but Lord please bring my baby through this & give me strength cause those of you that know me know how close me & my Son s are!”

Carr’s shooting seemed to touch off a paroxysm of vandalism and looting, with many demonstrators believing that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police shot Carr.

But the authorities said Wednesday night that Carr’s shooting was “civilian on civilian” with no police involvement.
