The protests experienced in Charlotte the past week are expanding, with a march planned by the faith community in downtown Mooresville on Friday.
Mooresville police said on Friday that they approved a permit for a peaceful march in the center of town, and expect the participants to start gathering at the Mooresville Town Hall at 6 p.m..
The march starts at 7 p.m. and will continues south on Main Street before turning right on Iredell Avenue, then left on Broad Street until ending at McLelland Avenue, officials said.
Charlotte has had three nights of protests, after an African American man was shot and killed by police on Tuesday. Police say the man had a gun and posed a threat, but family members have insisted he was carrying a book.
Never miss a local story.
One of the men involved in the Charlotte protests was shot and killed Wednesday night outside a Trade Street hotel. Police arrested a man on Friday and charged him in that shooting.
