CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts and Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners Chairman Trevor Fuller issued a proclamation to terminate a State of Emergency in Charlotte & Mecklenburg County one week after it was put into effect.

The State of Emergency was issued on Wednesday, Sept. 21, after violent protests erupted in the Queen City in connection with the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.
