Dozens of people took to the streets Wednesday night in protest after a district attorney decided against charging a black police officer in the fatal shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, a black man who was waiting in his car on September 20 when he was confronted by police.
The District Attorney ruled the Charlotte, N.C. police officer was "justified" in the fatal shooting and "acted lawfully," because Scott had a gun in his hands and refused to heed warnings to drop it when he was killed.
Protesters marched in Charlotte after the announcement there would be no charges.

The District Attorney said the "Charlotte police officer acted lawfully."
One reporter described the protest as "relatively peaceful."
Marchers stood in the streets chanting.
The district attorney asked the public to review the case findings before protesting again. Two nights of protests after the September shooting led to several injuries and cost the city millions of dollars in damages.
