CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) – Charlotte’s mayor is imposing a curfew starting at midnight as city residents protest for the third consecutive night.
Mayor Jennifer Roberts told reporters Thursday night that she had signed documents to impose a curfew that will run from midnight to 6 a.m.
She expects it to be in place for multiple days until officials determine they no longer need it.
The city’s government issued a Tweet saying the curfew is citywide.
Protesters took to the streets for a third night but were largely peaceful Thursday. Two previous nights of chaotic protests included injuries, one death arrests and vandalism.
