(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — The Charlotte Police Department has announced it will release the full video of the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott — an incident that sparked a wave of violent protests.

The full dashboard and body camera videos will be released after Scott’s family reviews them next week, the CPD announced on Twitter.

On Thursday, audio was released from police radio and a 911 call placed after Scott was shot. Portions of the dashboard and body cameras were released over the weekend, and a cellphone video taken by Scott’s wife, Rakeyia Scott, were released last week.

Scott, 43, was shot by a Charlotte police officer on Sept. 20 and later died, prompting violent protests to erupt in downtown Charlotte in the days following his death. Police said they saw Scott exit his car with a firearm, and a handgun was found on the scene in “close proximity” to Scott’s body.
