USA: Body camera footage shows Keith Scott shooting

United States, Charlotte
September 25, 2016 at 00:09 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage was released on Saturday from the body mounted camera of one of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers at the scene of the fatal shooting of 43 year old Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Tuesday.

The footage runs from the time when the officer turned his camera on, before Scott was shot to after his shooting when he is prone on the ground.

A press release issued alongside the video says the "combination of illegal drugs and the gun" in Scott's possession prompted the officers to "take enforcement action for public safety." The report says a lab analysis shows Scott's DNA on a gun present and that the gun was loaded.
