Shocking new footage shows the moments leading up to the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Scott’s wife captured the video on her cell phone. Scott can be seen on the ground just moments after he was shot by officers. At the beginning of the video, she can be seen telling police that he is unarmed and he shouldn’t be shot.
What’s more disturbing – is not only did she tell police that – but also that he had just “taken his medicine” and that he wouldn’t do anything to harm them.
But – they still shot him.
“He better not be f—ing dead, he better not be f—ing dead,” Rakeyia Scott can be heard shouting at the police officers. “He better live, he better live!”
There are conflicting reports that Scott was armed at the scene but this video lends further credence that he was indeed unarmed.
