Hillary Clinton will travel to Charlotte, North Carolina, on Sunday in the wake of a fatal police shooting of an African-American man that has sparked protests in the city.

The shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, a black man, has sparked protests in Charlotte and is the latest incident to fuel a national discussion about lethal police force, particularly against African-Americans.

Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill told reporters Friday more details will be forthcoming about Clinton’s trip.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is considering a trip to Charlotte next week after Monday’s debate, two aides told CNN Thursday. Campaign officials are looking at the logistics involved in such a trip.

Clinton also called Friday for officials in Charlotte, North Carolina, to make public a police video showing the fatal shooting of Scott.

“Charlotte should release police video of the Keith Lamont Scott shooting without delay. We must ensure justice & work to bridge divides. –H,” Clinton said in a tweet, the “H” indicating that she personally approved the message.

Two police videos from a dashboard camera and an officer’s body camera show how Scott died, but have not been released to the public. Police allowed Scott’s family to view the videos Wednesday.
