A protester holds up a sign during a march through the streets to protest the police shooting of Keith Scott in Charlotte, North CarolinaBy Robert MacMillan and Mike Blake CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Reuters) - The Charlotte police will release body camera and dashboard videos showing the fatal shooting of a black man that triggered rioting in the city, the police chief said on Saturday, following calls from protesters and civil rights leaders to make the footage public. The shooting on Tuesday of Keith Scott, a 43-year-old father of seven, was the latest in a series of deadly police encounters across the country in recent years that has raised questions about the use of force by U.S. law enforcement against African-Americans and other minorities. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney told a news conference that the evidence shows that Scott was in possession of a handgun during the confrontation with police.

Dustin Johnson is the hottest player on the USPGA Tour right now, with three wins since June including his breakthrough major title at the US OpenDustin Johnson's path to the biggest payday in golf got more complicated on Saturday as a third-round 69 left him tied for the lead with Kevin Chappell at the USPGA Tour Championship. Chappell, meanwhile, was a model of consistency, and patience, with two birdies in his two-under 68 that left him level with Johnson eight-under par 202.
