According to Time Warner Cable News, seven law enforcement officers were injured during Wednesday night's protests as well. Two employees at the Hyatt House on the 400 block of East Trade Street were also injured.
In the midst of a violent night of protests, questions initially emerged over who fired the shot. Charlotte officials tweeted that the shot was fired by a civilian, and not a Charlotte officer.
ALERT: Fatal shot uptown was civilian on civilian. @CMPD did not fire shot.
A public defender told the judge in Borum's case Monday that his client understands the charges against him, including an outstanding warrant from Georgia with a charge similar to possession of a gun by a felon.
Borum was appointed a public defender. There are lawyers at the Mecklenburg County courthouse who are offering pro-bono services for people arrested during the protests, but they are not involved in Borum’s case.
