The shooting of Keith Lamont Scott on September 20, 2016 by police officers in Charlotte prompted protesting in the city. Protesters marched and blocked Interstate 277 before being cleared from the road by police officers in riot gear using pepper spray.

Community members are concerned with policing practices and believe that the steps being made to improve relations between police and the community are insufficient.
