A curfew has been imposed in the US city of Charlotte as protests against the police were going on after a black man was shot dead.

 
As demonstrators filled the streets in the city to express their anger over Tuesday's incident, Mayor Jennifer Roberts signed an order for a curfew.
 
Curfew is part of a proclamation of a state of emergency, that says such step was necessary "in order to more effectively protect the lives and property of the people."
 
Chanting "No Justice, No Peace" and "Don't Shoot, Hands Up," protesters began peacefully marching down streets -- surrounded by rifle-carrying National Guard officers -- carrying signs that read "End Police Terror," "Black Lives Matter," "I Hope I Don't Killed For Being Black" and "Black Power."
