After the recent killing of Keith Lamont Scott, hundreds of people protested in the streets of downtown Charlotte.

The protest turned violent, resulting in nine civilians and five officers injured during the demonstrations, according to WSOC-TV.

Charlotte Hornets president Michael Jordan, issued a statement through the team website on Thursday afternoon, making a call for peace amid the chaos:

“First, I want to express my condolences to the Scott family for their loss. I also wish for a full recovery to those who have been injured.

“In light of the tragic events of the past three days, it is more important than ever that we restore calm and come together, as a community, in peaceful demonstration and conversation, and in constructive and non-violent ways. As part of the fabric of Charlotte, the Hornets organization is committed to working with civic leaders, our elected leaders and law enforcement to foster more trust, transparency and understanding so we can heal and grow together as a community.”

Jordan, who has notoriously stayed away from polemical situations during his career, has turned over a new leaf and become a much more socially-aware and active public figure.

His activism might be the one thing that can keep the NBA interested in holding the All-Star game in Charlotte in the future.
