Members of Keith Lamont Scott’s family released new video footage Friday of his fatal encounter with Charlotte police.
In the clip, which was filmed by his wife Rakeyia Scott and is just over two minutes long, Scott is seen on the ground after shots were fired, surrounded by officers and police cars.
Rakeyia is heard telling officers he is not armed before the shots are fired, and then afterwards: “He better not be f*cking dead. He better live.”
Keith Lamont Scott was fatally shot by police on Tuesday. His daughter livestreamed from the scene just after the event.
The video, which first aired on NBC, does not show the exact moment he was shot. It also doesn’t appear to show whether or not Scott had a gun. Police say Scott was armed, but his family insist he was reading a book in the car.
During the clip, which appears to be filmed in a square format from a cell phone, police are heard telling him to “drop the gun” ten times. Rakeyia Scott is heard telling them he has a “TBI” [traumatic brain injury] and just took his medicine.
This is the video in full, which contains scenes some might find distressing:
Protests over Scott’s death continued for a third night in the city Thursday. They were calmer than the previous two evenings and a curfew extended over the city was lifted. People on the scene have been livestreaming events on Facebook.
Hillary Clinton called on police to release their own footage “without delay” Friday morning.
Charlotte should release police video of the Keith Lamont Scott shooting without delay. We must ensure justice & work to bridge divides. -H

UPDATE: Friday Sept. 23 2:38 p.m. PT: Scott’s family released a statement Friday, saying they released the video “in the name of truth and transparency” and called on the police to release their own footage.
