VIDEO: Charlotte Police Release Body-Worn Video of Fatal OIS
Police body camera footage released on Tuesday shows what happened after a Sept. 20 officer-involved shooting by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg (NC) Police Department officer.
The video shows police officers handcuffing Keith Lamont Scott and then trying to save his life in the parking lot of his University City apartment complex. Officers in the video said they found three bullet wounds on Scott– on his wrist, abdomen, and on the back of his shoulder, reports the Charlotte Observer.
While a gun is not seen in the footage, one officer is heard telling another to "come watch this gun."
The body camera video, which lasts 16 minutes and 29 seconds, begins after Scott was shot. Much of it shows officers assessing and then tending to Scott's wounds, securing the scene and talking to Scott as they knelt beside him.
"Stay with us, bro, stay with us now," one officer says to Scott.
