While Charlotte, NC police maintain they have dashcam footage proving Keith Lamont Scott had a gun, it has not yet been released it to the public.
Meanwhile, NBC obtained footage taken from Scott’s wife, who was recording the altercation up to the moment Scott was shot.
It is unclear from the footage if Scott had a weapon, but his wife is clearly yelling to the officers that he is unarmed.
“Don’t shoot him, he has no weapon,” she repeatedly yells.
Simultaneously, officers can be heard yelling, “Drop the gun.”
Scott’s death has sparked local riots and a nationwide controversy not soon to find any closure anytime soon.
