There were protests after the shooting and now a Charlotte, North Carolina police officer has learned whether he'll face charges for it.

FOX's Eben Brown reports: 

September's shooting of Keith Lamont Scott by Charlotte police officer Brentley Vinson sparked riots in the city. But now the local prosecutor says that shooting was justifiable. Andrew Murray is the District Attorney:

(Murray) "And given the totallity of the circumstances and credible evidence in this case, it is my opinion that Officer Vinson acted lawfully when he shot Mr. Scott."

Murray says the conclusion comes after reviewing evidence and statements from witnesses. The family of Keith Lamont Scott expresses disappointment at the findings, insisting the officer's decision to shoot was wrong.
