SCOTT FAMILY RELEASES CELL PHONE VIDEO, MOMENTS BEFORE SHOOTING

The family of Keith Lamont Scott has released cell phone video, recorded by his wife, that shows the moments leading to his fatal shooting by police Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The video is the first publicly released footage related to the shooting, which spurred days of protests in Charlotte.
    "Don't shoot him. He has no weapon," Rakeyia Scott can be heard saying. The first portions of the shaky video appear to show a number of police officers surround a vehicle in a parking lot.
    A man repeatedly yells for someone -- apparently Keith Scott -- to "drop the gun."
    "He doesn't have a gun. He has a TBI (traumatic brain injury)," Rakeyia Scott says. "He's not going to do anything to you guys. He just took his medicine."
