Wife of Keith Scott, Charlotte Shooting Victim, Filmed Fatal Encounter With Police


CHARLOTTE — A cellphone camera video made by the wife of Keith L. Scott before he was fatally shot by police here shows the moments before and after the incident, including the wife’s pleas to her husband to get out of his truck, and her pleas to the police not to shoot him.

But the video, which was given to the Times by attorneys for the family Friday, 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 wife of Keith Scott filmed the encounter with police on a cellphone. The video has been released to the public through NBC. The video does not include the shooting itself. There's a transcript of the video at the link. I'll see if I can track down the video and embed it.

EDIT:

The video can be seen at NBC News.

EDIT 2:

Here's the video on YouTube. Be aware that it does contain profane language.

The video was also given to the New York Times. That video has subtitles and can be viewed here.

I left this post in the other thread for this as well.

. . .

Well, what we have here is . . . nothing.

Absolutely nothing.

Does not film her husband at all, or the gunshots. It is still her word vs. theirs. She did nothing to deescalate the situation save for cause a distraction to the cops. All I see here is an angry woman who don't like cops and don't trust her husband.

Yup, when the police video is released, maybe then we'll see something. Until then, we still have nothing to go on.

Nice. Just in time and the perfect video for it all to kick off tonight. The police had better release their videos NOW.

Well it does show a few things. It shows the cops repeatedly saying "drop the gun" as well as the wife saying that he does not have a gun and that the he has a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and that "he just took his medicine."

But you are correct, it's not a good angle and she drops the camera as she's moving closer.

You can hear the cops yelling 'drop the gun'...multiple times

Everyone handles stree differently, but why wouldn't you drop what's ever in your hands?

I think that this was a move by Mrs. Scott to force the release of the police video. My first thought is that it's a questionable tactic and Charlotte might have been better off if she'd waited until Monday.

But yes, I think the Police might want to release the video they have.

She did yell, "he doesn't have a gun" once along with "he's not going to hurt you."

Here's a still from ABC News that purports to show the gun that was recovered at the scene:

That is not necessarily up to the police. There is an investigation going on, so either the feds or DA probably have the tapes right now (memory card).

I'm sure the video is all digital so there wouldn't be tapes, it would just be copies of files.

Well she yelled once " He doesn't have a gun." However the police continue to yell "Drop the gun!" Then she switches to "Keith don't do it.Keith don't do it."

What I want to know is don't do what?

I read somewhere that the NC SBI is in charge of the investigation. I'll have to look for that source.

www.wsoctv.com...

According to state law, the DA must request SBI to investigate any police shooting if the family asks for it. Apparently the family has made that request and the DA has complied with that request.

She also repeatedly yelled to her husband "Keith, don't you do it" right before cops had to resort to lethal force.

Don't do what? Put a bookmark in the tome he was reading?

That part was a little unclear to me. She said "Keith" and then she repeated "don't do it" and it wasn't entirely clear if she was telling her husband not to do something and what it was she was telling him not to do or if she was talking to the cops.

It certainly seems like she was talking to her husband but there's a little room for interpretation because she only says "Keith" once at the beginning, followed by a pause.

You know what. It looked a little small to me before but now I'm thinking that's not a gun at all. Are those black gloves?

In the beginning I hear her say "He has a 'TBI' or is it 'TVI', what's that?

Nevermind, it means traumatic brain injury. Does someone with a traumatic brain injury allowed to drive? And I thought he was picking up his son from school. Looks like residential houses, where's the school?
