North Carolina's governor has issued a state of emergency following a second night of violent protests in Charlotte.
Gov. Pat McCrory said he was working to deploy the National Guard and Highway Patrol to help local law enforcement.
The announcement came after city officials said one person was shot and killed during the protests. They later corrected themselves, saying the person — who was shot by another civilian and not law enforcement — was on life support.
