Charlotte police chief Kerr Putney will allow the family of Keith Lamont Scott to view footage of his shooting. According to USA Today Putney will not be releasing the video to the public. The chief said the video "does not give me absolute definitive visual evidence that would confirm that a person is pointing a gun" but it does support the "police version of events."
Scott was shot and killed when police were serving an arrest warrant at an apartment complex where he was parked in his car. Police said Scott was armed and would not take directions from officers. Residents on the scene claimed he was carrying a book, not a weapon.
