Peaceful protesters marched for a sixth night after the officer-involved shooting of Keith Lamont Scott

The city of Charlotte announced Sunday evening that the curfew that had been imposed in response to protests after the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott has been lifted, effective immediately.

Protests were peaceful Saturday night, although some clergy and demonstrators ignored the midnight curfew to stop and pray outside the Charrlotte-Mecklenburg police headquarters, just hours after the department released body cam and dash cam video footage of the fatal shooting of Scott on Tuesday.

Demonstrators filled the streets of downtown Charlotte carrying signs that read "Hands Up, They Still Shoot," "Why Us?" "Define 'Bad Due,'" and "Black Lives Matter," but the protests were orderly.

The curfew was imposed Thursday after demonstrations over the past week have become violent, with protesters looting and vandalizing businesses, and the National Guard was called out to help maintain order.
