Keith Lamont Scott’s fingerprints, DNA, blood found on gun, police sources say
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tests revealed Keith Scott’s fingerprints, DNA and blood were on a gun recovered at Tuesday’s officer-involved shooting scene, police sources told WSOC.
Scott was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer in University City.
Police said they have video of the shooting, but will not release it so it doesn’t jeopardize the investigation.
Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts said she believes that the video should be released, but she said it’s a matter of timing.
When asked if she saw a gun on the video of Keith Scott being shot, Roberts answered, “There were two videos I was able to see, the visual clarity made those videos inconclusive.”
CMPD Chief Kerr Putney said police have handed the investigation over to the State Bureau of Investigation, but he was still fielding questions about the video and why police haven’t released it Friday at a news conference.
Scott’s family saw one and possibly two videos Thursday that show the final moments leading up to the shooting. The family has called for it to be released.
