Scott gets out, starts walking backward, and then four shots ring out. His wife’s voice is audible as she yells both at him and at officers. It’s unclear if there’s anything in the man’s hands.

From a different angle, police body camera footage shows an officer approach with his gun drawn and another officer already pointing his gun at Scott.

Newly released police footage shows more details of how the fatal shooting of a black man unfolded. From a different angle, police body camera footage shows an officer approach with his gun drawn and another officer already pointing his gun at Scott.

Warning: The content of this video may be disturbing to some viewers.

When Scott comes into view, he has his hands at his side and is standing outside of his car. The body camera footage doesn’t show the moment the shots are fired, and Scott next comes into view already on the ground.

Audio in the body camera footage can’t be heard until after Scott is on the ground.

Charlotte police have released a narrative of what they say happened in the moments leading up to the fatal shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.

The department said in an update released late Saturday that says two plainclothes officers were preparing to arrest someone else when they saw Scott sitting in an SUV, rolling a marijuana blunt.

Officers say they weren’t concerned about the drugs until they noticed that Scott had a gun with him, according to police. But after an officer “observed Mr. Scott hold a gun up,” police put on marked vests to identify themselves as officers, police added.

The officers say they identified themselves as police and gave Scott orders to drop the gun, which he refused. A uniformed officer tried to use a baton to break out a window on Scott’s SUV, the narrative states.

Police say the man got out of the SUV, with the gun, and backed away while ignoring the demands to drop it.

Perceiving Scott’s actions as an “imminent physical threat,” Officer Brentley Vinson fired his weapon at Scott, according to the statement. Both Vinson and Scott are black.

Police say detectives interviewed witnesses, who confirmed that Scott hadn’t complied with officers’ demands.

The report also says forensic examination shows Scott’s DNA and fingerprints on the loaded gun retrieved from the scene and that Scott was wearing an ankle holster.
