CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Police in Charlotte, North Carolina, say one person is dead after a shooting involving an officer.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said in a Twitter feed that a weapon was recovered at the scene of the Thursday shooting on the city's east side. No officers were hurt, but no further details were immediately available.
Word of the shooting came about an hour after Charlotte-Mecklenburg police released videos captured on body cameras and dashboard cameras of a shooting last June in which officers said they confronted a suspect wanted in a shooting aboard a city bus. That suspect was shot and killed, and officers were cleared of any wrongdoing.
Charlotte endured several nights of unrest after a police officer shot and killed a black man last September. That officer was cleared of any wrongdoing.
