Earlier this week, reports began circulating that an ‘unarmed' black man named Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed by police in Charlotte, N.C. Soon afterward the city erupted in riots.
Meanwhile, the police released their own version of events, claiming that the man was holding a gun and refused to drop his weapon before he was killed.
Rioters rejected the claims made by law enforcement and stood by their belief that Scott was holding a book, not a gun.
Now video has been released by a family member of the victim that may help settle the dispute. Was he armed? Or was he simply reading a book in his truck, as the family members initially claimed?
