WATCH: Protests in Charlotte, North Carolina

Keith Lamont Scott, a black man, was reportedly reading a book when he was shot dead by police in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 20.

According to the Charlotte Observer, the shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Village at College Downs apartment complex on Old Concord Road just before 4 p.m.

Officers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant, but the man who was shot was not the person they were attempting to take into custody.

Police told the newspaper Scott was armed and a gun was recovered at the scene by detectives.

However, the police chief said he could not be sure by a video he observed if Scott was indeed pointing a gun. You can watch his speech at a news conference below:
