It was open season on white bystanders in Charlotte, North Carolina last night.

Agitators attacked a white man walking through a parking garage on Wednesday.

Video shows a large group chasing him before surrounding him, knocking him down, kicking him and dragging across the ground and ripping off his pants.

They laughed as one shouted, “Oh, sh*t!” in delight.

Rioters attacked a photographer and attempted to throw his limp body into a fire burning in the middle of the street.

Police officers were forced to venture into the mob to retrieve his body.

Rioters are using the death of an armed black man as the predicate to attack, loot and burn downtown Charlotte.

As for the shooting incident, WCCB reports:

Police say a person was killed in an officer-involved shooting in the University area.

The shooting was reported Tuesday afternoon just before 4pm on Old Concord Road near Bonnie Lane and John Kirk Drive.

Police say officers with the Metro Division Crime Reduction Unit were searching for a suspect with an outstanding warrant on him at The Village at College Downs.

Officers say they saw a subject inside a vehicle in the apartment complex. The subject allegedly exited the vehicle armed with a firearm. Officers say the subject got back into the vehicle and then the officers started to approach the subject.

That’s when police say the subject got back out of the vehicle armed with a firearm and posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers who subsequently fired their weapon striking the subject. The officers immediately requested MEDIC and began performing CPR, according to a news release.

The subject was pronounced dead on the scene.
