The board announced Thursday that the vote was evenly split 4-4, so it won't issue a finding on whether the shooting was justified.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking the public to help identify a man accused of shooting another man at the busy Midnight Diner in South End.

The board heard about eight hours of testimony behind closed doors Tuesday about the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott in September 2016.

The board is reviewing the police department's internal investigation and procedures.

Officer Brentley Vinson killed Scott outside a University City apartment complex in September, sparking days of protests and dozens of arrests in the city. The district attorney said separately that no charges would be filed against the black officer.

The board reviewed documents, evidence and videos in this shooting, the attorney said.
