The moment North Carolina police shot a black man was captured on video by his wife, who can be heard pleading with officers: “Don’t shoot him!”

The clip does not show the actual shooting, or make clear if Mr Scott was carrying a gun, as police say.

Officers can be heard urging him to “drop the gun” but his wife is heard telling them he is unarmed.

On Friday evening, a few hundred protestors took to the streets, but the demonstrations was smaller than on the previous three nights.

They chanted “No justice, no peace” and “Release the video” – a call for the police to release their dash-cam and body-cam images of the incident.

The state governor has declared a state of emergency in the city, and a midnight curfew has been imposed for a second night running, after rioters looted businesses and threw objects at police on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
