Charlotte Police to Release All Video of Keith Lamont Scott Killing

HeadlineOct 03, 2016

Meanwhile, in Charlotte, North Carolina, police say they will publicly release all dash cam and body-worn video of the killing of 43-year-old African American Keith Lamont Scott. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says it is allowing Scott’s family to review the footage before it makes the videos public this week. Police previously released portions of video of the killing, and even the police chief admits the videos do not show Scott clearly holding a gun. North Carolina is an open-carry state. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton visited the Little Rock AME Zion Church in Charlotte over the weekend, where she appeared alongside 9-year-old Zianna Oliphant, whose testimony at a Charlotte City Council meeting about police brutality went viral.
