>> Protesters swarming and enters State highway in Charlotte Thursday night, halting traffic to make their voices heard. The mood more subdued on the third night of protest over the police shooting on African-American Keith Scott. The city Mayor has announced the curfew but Reuters Andy Sole Vans said that's had relatively little impact.

>> It's midnight and Charlotte, the curfew has kicked in but hundreds of people are still out on the street marching. Police are hanging back, there is no real direct confrontation at this point. It's been a remarkably peaceful evening. I haven't seen any of the distraction or vandalism or violence of the previous two nights.

At one point, police did deploy tear gas to force protestors off the freeway. I saw another confrontation where a bystander got out of the car and brandished a gun at some of the protesters but nobody was hurt in that incident.>> Marching from the city center kicked off at sun down, news followed shortly after that a man who was shot in the head during Wednesday's protest had died from his injuries.

It's not clear who shot him but police say it wasn't one of their guns. Riots broke out this week after Scott's killing at the hands of police. It's the latest spike in US tension over the use of deadly force against black men. Police say Scott had a gun but his family says he was holding a book.

His family viewed two police videos of the shooting Thursday, their lawyer says it's hard to see what Scott actually had in his hand. There are now widespread cries for authorities to make the videos public.>> We want the tapes! We want the tapes!
