As tensions continue to rise in Charlotte following the death of Keith Scott and the uncertain, conflicting details around his final moments that ended with a gunshot from a police officer, the NFL and Carolina Panthers are reportedly considering relocating Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

FOX 46 Charlotte shared the news on Thursday morning, following two nights of protests that have turned violent.

North Carolina is currently in a state of emergency, and the National Guard arrived in the city late Wednesday night.

Panthers President Danny Morrison released a statement on the current situation.

If the game is moved, there is no word on where it will take place.

The Panthers and Vikings are currently scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff on FOX at Bank of America Stadium.
