(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — A video capturing the moments leading up to and following the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, which has sparked days of protests across the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, was released by the man’s family Friday.
In a cellphone video obtained by The New York Times, a woman identified as Scott’s wife, Rakeyia Scott, is screaming at police not to shoot her husband. Multiple gunshots are then heard, but the actual shooting is not shown on the footage released as the woman points the cellphone at the ground. However, she continues to film and yell at police.
“He better not be f—ing dead. He better not be f—ing dead,” she screams. “He better live. I swear, he better live.”
