SEPT. 24: Charlotte Police Release Portions of Keith Scott Shooting Caught on Body Cam 1:13

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department released portions of dashcam and bodycam videos last week that it said was relevant to the shooting.

Scott's family has said that he had suffered a traumatic brain injury and has questioned whether he had a gun at the time of the shooting. But police released a photo of a handgun last week that they said Scott was holding when he was shot by Officer Brentley Vinson.

The videos release last week do not clearly show if Scott was holding anything, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said before the videos were released.

The shooting caused days of sometimes violent protests in the city.
