CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The curfew in Charlotte has been lifted "effective immediately," according to a press release from the city Sunday. The curfew was in place from midnight to 6 a.m. for three days. 

The State of Emergency remains in effect.

"Mayor Jennifer Roberts and Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners Trevor M. Fuller announce the City of Charlotte has lifted the curfew, effective immediately," the release said.

The curfew was issued Thursday night, the third night of protests, at 9:15 p.m. just after large groups began gathering in various locations around the Queen City. Officials said the order was put into place "in order to more effectively protect the lives and property of the people within the City of Charlotte."

Protests have continued every night in Charlotte since the curfew was put in place. 

Mayor Roberts still asks the community to "come together and show their unity in a peaceful and legal manner."
