Charlotte, N.C. police say an officer who shot and killed an unarmed man has been charged with voluntary manslaughter.

Police say the man shot had apparently been in a wreck and was seeking help by knocking on the door of a house early Saturday morning. The woman who lived there called 911.

Police say the victim charged at officers, and a taser was used before shots were fired.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe said at a news conference that the officer turned himself in.
