A protester was shot and killed in Charlotte, North Carolina, Wednesday evening during protests over a recent police shooting.

Reports indicate that protesters began blaming the incident on law enforcement shortly after but the city of Charlotte denied the claim on Twitter.

“After the shooting, protesters began throwing bottles, dirt clods and fireworks at the officers,” The Salt Lake Tribune notes. The police fired flash grenades and then tear gas back, dispersing the crowd of several hundred.”

One CNN reporter was also assaulted by a so-called protester during a live report.
