On Tuesday afternoon, Keith Lamont Scott, a 43 year old black man, was fatally shot by police at an apartment complex in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Here are 5 on point tweets about his death.
Witnesses say #KeithLamontScott had a book. Cops say he had a gun. But in an open-carry state, that not an offense, much less a capital one.

Cops were looking for a different person, then murdered #KeithLamontScott
Folks want to get mad when we don't stand for the National Anthem

A disabled man was shot and killed today by police while waiting for his son to get off the school bus. Let that sink in. #KeithLamontScott

Again, members of the media.
Do NOT call #KeithLamontScott a "suspect."
He was NOT a suspect or wanted for ANYTHING when police shot him.
