Officials are calling for peace and rest in North Carolina this morning after angry protestors took to the streets following the death of another Black man at the hands of police.

Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed on Tuesday by Black officer Brentley Vinson, a two-year veteran with the police force. Brentley was looking for a suspect with an outstanding warrant in the same apartment complex, but instead, had an encounter with Scott, who apparently got out of his car with a gun.

There are two different stories being told about what exactly transpired between the officer and Keith prior to the shooting. According to officials, Scott had a gun and was an immediate threat to the officer, but according to his family, the father was reading a book while waiting for his son to get out of school.


Per the family, what Vinson believed to be a gun was a book; however, officials confirmed that detectives recovered “the firearm the subject was holding in his hands.”

Folks around Charlotte were up in arms following Scott’s tragic death, demonstrating in the streets near where Keith lost his life — but what started off as peaceful turned into riots and clashing with officers.

Police fired tear gas, shut down a main interstate and about a dozen officers and handful of demonstrators suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts took to Twitter suggesting, “The community deserves answers and (a) full investigation will ensue.”

As for the officer who shot and killed Scott — he was placed on administrative leave.

Tensions around the country are especially high, given the recent shooting death of Terence Crutcher, who was shot by a white officer last week in Tulsa. Celebrities have taken to social media to express their anger and sadness.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up for Scott’s loved ones, whom he leaves behind.

Claudia Jordan Seeks Revenge On HH’s Kevin Frazier!



Remember the “Golden Rule”: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

HipHollywood’s Head Honcho Kevin Frazier could have used that piece of advice before stopping by “The Raw Word” on Wednesday, but unfortunately, we didn’t get to him in time. We kid, we kid. It’s more like the “Entertainment Tonight” host got a dose of his own medicine.

Before his chat with “TRW” hosts Michael Eric Dyson, Claudia Jordan and executive producer and guest co-host, Ice-T, HH stopped by the set to get the inside scoop on if they planned on grilling our guy like he’s had to do to so many celebs himself. Instantly, Jordan began plotting her revenge, “he catches people off-guard all the time,” Claudia quipped, “so let him come here and he will find out for himself what the question are because he’s gotten me a couple times.”

Luckily, when Kevin did show up, the two played nice. Check out the clip below and be sure to head to for local listings.
