Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police on Thursday released audio from the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.
What the video does not show is the exact moment Scott is shot on Tuesday by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers, but you can hear four shots fired in the background.
Charlotte police claim Scott was armed, but his family says he was perched in his car, reading a book while he waited for his son after school.
Overnight, protesters blocked off several streets and a portion of I-85 near the scene of the crime, rallying for justice.
“One of the first things I did was to get down to his level, take a deep breath and not say anything for a couple minutes,” Officer Purdy said in an interview with WSOC.
