Following the fatal police shooting of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina, Tuesday, 16 police officers were injured in protests that included the smashing of police cars, looting of a local Wal-Mart and stopping traffic on busy interstate I-85.
"Just know that all white people are f***king devils," the man's brother told reporters Tuesday prior to the protests. "All white cops are f***king devils and white people."

Tuesday's protests were located in the same area as the fatal shooting, which closed a busy road in the city's "university area." However, people on Wednesday told news reporters that they planned to take the protests to the wealthier parts of Charlotte, which are mostly located on the south side of the city and include the "South Park" and "Ballentyne" neighborhoods.
But even innocent people were caught up in the protests, which turned violent after dark. One family who was driving in the area of the protests told a WSOC-TV reporter that despite doing nothing wrong, the windshield of their car was smashed by protesters.
"Unfortunately with these protesters, they don't see the difference — we're people trying to get home, we haven't done anything wrong," the unidentified woman said. "I fear that if we hadn't stopped, they probably would have done something else."
More protests are planned for Wednesday, although it is not immediately clear where organizers plan to set up.
