CMPD has released the body and dash cam footage in the Keith Lamont Scott shooting investigation. The video was released days after protesters demanded that the footage be made public.
Officers say during that search they noticed a subject, later identified as Keith Lamont Scott, inside a vehicle in the apartment complex. Scott exited the vehicle armed with a firearm, according to police. Officers say Scott got back into the vehicle and then the officers started to approach him.
That’s when police say Scott got back out of the vehicle armed with a firearm and posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers who subsequently fired their weapon striking Scott. The officers immediately requested MEDIC and began performing CPR, according to a news release.
