Hillary Clinton’s campaign confirmed Friday that she will travel to Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The city has been the site of intense protests following the police killing of Keith Lamont Scott on Tuesday afternoon.

After Scott’s wife, Rakeyia Scott, released video of the police shooting that she had taken on her cell phone to NBC News and the New York Times on Friday, Clinton called on the Charlotte Police Department to release body cam and dash cam video of the incident “without delay.”

Throughout the week, Clinton has commented on the shooting that led to Scott’s death, and on another officer-involved shooting in Tulsa, Oklahoma, calling the events “unbearable” and “intolerable.”

On Wednesday night, Justin Carr was shot while attending the protests in Charlotte. He died of his injuries on Thursday, and Rayquan Borum was arrested Friday morning in connection with the murder.
