The mayor of Charlotte is urging Hillary Clinton to postpone her announced visit to the embattled North Carolina city.

Mayor Jennifer Roberts told CNN on Friday that the Democratic presidential nominee should hold off coming to Charlotte and let the city recuperate from days of protest after the shooting of a black man by police.

Clinton’s campaign said earlier in the day that she would travel to Charlotte on Sunday, one day before her first high-profile debate with Republican Donald Trump. Her campaign did not immediately release details of her visit to Charlotte.

Clinton also said police video of the fatal shooting should be released immediately.
