Protesters & Media Have Demanded Video Release of Moments Before Charlotte Shooting, and Here It Is

Graphic video warning: The images and video may be disturbing for some readers.

The police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott has sparked outrage all across the country.

In Charlotte, there were two nights of rioting. The first night, rioters shut down a freeway, looted semi-trucks, and then burned the cargo. The second night, a civilian was killed and multiple people were assaulted.

Since that time, the media and those protesting Scott’s death, have demanded video footage of the moment Lamont was shot and killed.

The New York Times obtained exclusive footage of the incident via Scott’s wife, Rakeyia:

At the very beginning of the video, you can hear Rakeyia say:

“Don’t shoot him. Don’t shoot him. He has no weapon. He has no weapon.”

At the same time, the police are yelling, “Drop the gun!”

Yet, Scott’s wife then claims “he doesn’t have a gun, he has a TBI” (Traumatic brain injury). She then tells the police on the scene that he “isn’t going to do anything” and “he just took his medicine.”

And law enforcement officials are continuing to order Scott to “drop the gun.”

Rakeyia then says, “Keith, don’t let them break the windows, come on out of the car.” And asks repeatedly for her husband to get out of the car.

Four seconds later, gunshots can be heard. Rakeyia exclaims, “Did you shoot him? Did you shoot him? Did you shoot him? He better not be f***** dead. He better not to be f***** dead.”

Moments later, Rakeyia can be heard on the phone talking to someone about officers who shot her husband. She continues to say, “He better live.”

Then, the footage clearly reveals that Scott has been taken down and is unresponsive.

While there isn’t a gun in the image, the firearm that later appears on video may have fallen out of his pants. Other news outlets have speculated that it is a glove.
