Disturbing videos have emerged of protesters brutally attacking white bystanders in Charlotte as violent demonstrations continued to engulf the city, 48 hours after a black man was shot dead by police.

A man was dragged and beaten by a mob while begging for mercy and an unconscious photographer was almost tossed into a fire, and a CNN correspondent was slammed to the ground in the midst of the chaos.

It was the second night of unrest following the deadly shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, 43, by African-American cop, Brentley Vinson, 26, at an apartment complex on Tuesday afternoon.

Police said 44 people were arrested for a variety of crimes such as assault, breaking and entering, and failure to disperse. At least 11 people, including two cops, were taken to hospital.
