CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WLOS) - Charlotte protesters are demanding more transparency from authorities following the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott.

They will hold a unity rally for justice and transparency at Marshall Park Monday at 6:30 p.m.

Demonstrators say they are calling for a federal investigation in the fatal shooting of Scott by an officer.

The rally comes after body- and dash-camera video were released this weekend.

Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts acknowledged several questions remain unanswered.

"There are many pieces that need to be put together to make a complete picture, because the videos clearly do not make a complete picture. I think we can't draw any conclusions from them, that leads to the uncertainty. So, I am urging our SBI to conclude that investigation and release the information as soon as possible," she said.

Authorities have lifted a city-wide curfew, and protests remained peaceful as they continued through a sixth straight night.

News 13 will have a crew at Monday night's rally, and will bring you a live report starting at 6 p.m.
