North Carolina police investigate shooting involving officer

Authorities say a police officer has shot someone near downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

The Raleigh Police Department said in a statement that the shooting happened shortly after noon Monday, but provided no details on what led to the shooting, who was shot, or what that person's condition was.

Local television coverage showed police forming a line in the street as a number of people gathered at the scene behind yellow crime-scene tape and began chanting "No justice, no peace!" Some people shouted obscenities at the officers.

The chant has been used repeatedly across the nation in recent years to protest the deaths of black men following encounters with law enforcement officers.
