Video of Tuesday’s fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott doesn’t definitively show the victim pointing a gun, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department Chief Kerr Putney said Thursday. . . .
“The video does not give me absolute, definitive visual evidence that could confirm that a person is pointing a gun,” Putney said in a morning news conference. “I didn’t see that in the videos I saw.” . . .
Putney says his department releases shooting video “when we believe there is a compelling reason.” He said he supports transparency in the case, “but I never said full transparency.”
