Charlotte Police Release Dashcam Footage Of Deadly Shooting

26 September, 2016

After the story broke on the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, police claimed he had gun.

Putney said officers saw Scott had possessed marijuana, which they did not act on.

The dashboard camera video from an arriving police vehicle, released Saturday by Charlotte's police chief, shows officers surrounding Scott's auto.

She says that she has watched videos of the shooting released Saturday by police and doesn't think Scott was threatening officers or that the shooting was justified. But he says pay attention as Keith Scott comes out of his auto, using his left hand to open the door, saying clearly there is no gun in that hand. Four shots are heard before he falls to the ground. The body camera footage doesn't show the moment shots are fired, and Scott is next seen on the ground.

The footage was released following the explosive clip where Mr Scott's wife begged for her husband's life that rocked North Carolina.

Police content Scott was shot after he refused to drop a gun following multiple orders to do so, but his family has said he was carrying a book during the confrontation, and was non-aggressive toward officers.

Charlotte police have released dashboard camera footage showing the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott earlier this week. "People can interpret anything they want based on one piece of evidence, and I can tell you, I suspect they will based on the video footage". His wife's voice is audible as she yells both at him and at officers.

Those commands are not heard in the body camera video, which does not have audible sound until after the shooting.

Mr Putney said Mr Scott was "absolutely in possession of a handgun". Police said Scott was not the suspect that officers sought but that he was holding a handgun, which investigators recovered from the scene, and posed a threat because he was not obeying police orders to remain inside his vehicle and drop the weapon.

Williams says, "That's the question where was the gun, this video you can't tell where the gun was".

The protesters chanted along to the beat of a brass band, and then were drowned out by noise from inside the stadium.

True Healing Under God, the Charlotte civil rights group, said at a news conference Friday they would have about 100 people protesting Sunday morning near the stadium to "Keep Pounding" on justice. Scott was fatally shot Tuesday by a Charlotte officer.

Police said that the gun recovered at the scene was loaded and had Scott's fingerprints and DNA. It is among a number of shootings in recent years that have spurred debate about how and when police should use deadly force and how race factors into whom police shoot.

Pat McCrory backed Putney's decision to release the video, adding: "We have appreciated the ongoing dialogue and team work between state and city officials to seek public transparency while protecting the integrity of the investigation and the rights of all parties involved in this case".

Before we get into what may or may not be solved by this, here are the two videos which the cops released.

"Mr. Scott does not appear to be acting aggressive", attorney Justin Bamberg said of the video.
