(Before It's News)

In Charlotte, North Carolina, riots took place overnight out of what were originally purported to be protests in the wake of yet another police shooting.

Shots were fired, and one civilian went to the hospital in critical condition, the apparent victim of gunfire from another civilian. A police officer was assaulted. A highway was blocked and cars were surrounded as the drivers were terrorized (video at link).

Rioters even attempted to drag a photographer into a fire they set, as others blocked access to emergency vehicles. Luckily the police on the street intervened and rescued him.

Widespread looting took place, with smashed windows and cars. One reporter who has covered both the Ferguson and Baltimore riots stated that this was the worst property destruction he’s ever seen.
