Yesterday’s fatal shooting of a black man by police led to a night of widespread violence in Charlotte, North Carolina.  A woman calling herself the dead man’s daughter said he was un-armed and reading a book in his car. Her claim went viral. This morning, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney told reporters, "A weapon was seized -- a handgun.  I can also tell you we did not find a book that has been made reference to.  I can just tell you what I've gathered thru the scientific process of going thru the evidence and we did find a weapon and the weapon was there and the witnesses corroborated it too, just beyond the officers."

Tom Bullock, who reports for public radio station WFAE in North Carolina, updates the story.
