“We will honor the family’s request and release the video once they family has reviewed the video next week,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said on Friday. 

In dash cam footage released earlier, gun shots can be heard. At least three officers can be seen, two white and one black, following the shots who appear to be attending to something or someone on the ground.

Police can be heard reporting in “shots fired.” The video then ends.

The State Bureau of Investigation has given their assurance that the release of the videos will not impact their investigation, the chief said.

It’s unclear from the footage whether Scott was in possession of a gun, however physical and DNA evidence released by police do indicate that Scott was armed.

Investigators said a lab analysis conducted of the gun recovered at the scene revealed the presence of Scott’s DNA and his fingerprints on the gun. Investigators also found that the gun Scott possessed was loaded at the time of the encounter with the officers.

Funeral services scheduled this week for Keith Lamont Scott have been canceled due to pending weather from Hurricane Matthew.
