Protests continue for fifth straight night in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (KRQE) – A fifth day of protests against the fatal shooting of Keith Lamont Scott remained largely peaceful after the release of the partial police vehicle dashcam and police body cam footage.

The video, sought by protesters for days, isn’t settling questions about whether the man threatened police with a gun before he was felled by a black officer.

The dashboard camera video released Saturday by police in Charlotte shows Scott slowly backing away from his SUV with his hands down. It’s not apparent if he’s holding anything. Four shots are heard, and he falls mortally wounded.

Police said Scott had a gun, though residents have said he was unarmed.
