The city's government issued a Tweet saying the curfew is citywide.
"At the end of the day he was disabled", he said. He also ordered the deployment of the state's National Guard and State Highway Patrol to assist local law enforcement forces in restoring order in the city.
A curfew went into effect in Charlotte at midnight Thursday after a night of largely peaceful protests following two nights of violence, but there were no plans by police to immediately enforce it.
TV video showed that some protesters held up posters saying "Stop killing us", "Resistance is attractive", and "Release the tapes".
Protesters moved downtown from Trade Street to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
The Charlotte violence unfolded as demonstrators in Tulsa, Oklahoma, called for the arrest of a police officer there who was seen in widely viewed videos shooting to death an unarmed black man who had his hands in clear view at the time.
"I'm not going to jeopardize the investigation", he told reporters.
In a statement released through attorney Justin Bamberg, the family said the videos left them with "more questions than answers".
A photo reportedly taken at the scene of the shooting and confirmed by police shows a gun at Scott's feet, WCNC reports.
Scott's family has claimed, since shortly after the shooting, that Keith Lamont Scott was merely reading a book and never had a gun.
The video shows Scott calmly obeying police orders and walking slowly backwards raising up his arms, the family's lawyer said.
Charlotte police say man shot during Wednesday night protests has died and homicide investigation has been launched. No suspect in the case has been arrested so far.
In response to the request from the family of Keith Lamont Scott, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney told Fox News' Megyn Kelly on "The Kelly File" that the decision to release the video was not up to him, but added "I think [releasing the footage] is probably the better option right now".
Chanting "No Justice, No Peace" and "Don't Shoot, Hands Up", protesters began peacefully marching down streets around 7:30 p.m. - surrounded by rifle-carrying National Guard officers - carrying signs that read "End Police Terror", "Black Lives Matter", "I Hope I Don't Killed For Being Black" and "Black Power".
Scott, 43, was killed on Tuesday by a black police officer as part of a police search for another man.
Putney said he has seen the video and it does not contain "absolute, definitive evidence that would confirm that a person was pointing a gun". Scott's wife, Rakeyia, was among family members who were eyewitnesses to the shooting, the lawyer said.
