Wife Of Keith Scott Filmed Deadly Encounter With Police (Warning.. Disturbing Video And Graphic Language)

(SL) – Dramatic video has been released showing the final minutes of Keith Lamont Scott’s life. City officials haven’t released dash-cam or body-cam footage yet claiming they don’t want to impede the investigation. But Scott’s family submitted video taken by Scott’s wife Rakeyia to the New York Times.

The cellphone camera video includes Rakeyia’s pleas to her husband to get out of his truck and her pleas to the officers not to shoot him. But the video does not include a view of the shooting itself. Nor does it answer the crucial question of whether Mr. Scott had a gun, as the police have maintained. The officer who shot Scott has been identified as Brentley Vinson.

The lawyers said Ms. Scott had come out of the apartment with a cellphone charger for her husband and noticed that police officers were around the truck.

Justin Bamberg, one of the attorney’s representing the Scott family along with Eduardo Curry, said in an interview Friday that the video did not prove whether the shooting was justified or not. Rather, he said, it offered “another vantage point” of the incident. He says he hoped the Police Department would release its own videos of the shooting, as protesters have been demanding since Mr. Scott was killed on Tuesday afternoon.
