Protesters took to the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina, for a fourth night on Friday, calling on law enforcement to "release the tapes" of the fatal police shooting of a black man, hours after the victim's family released its own video.

Dozens of protesters gathered after nightfall in a small park before setting off on a march through city streets, chanting "Resist the police" and calling for the video to be made public.Several people wrote the names of victims of police shootings across the country in chalk on a Charlotte street, as armed National Guard troops stood by.

The family of shooting victim Keith Scott released their own video of the slaying earlier on Friday.
