    Police release bodycam footage of Keith Scott shooting

    Sept.25, Charlotte: Police in Charlotte, North Carolina, have released officer bodycam and dashcam footage of a controversial shooting of a black man on Tuesday.

    They also released pictures of a handgun and marijuana that police say Keith Lamont Scott possessed.

    Calls for the footage to be released increased in the four days since Mr Scott was shot, and comes after the release of footage shot by his wife.

    The family of Mr Scott says he was carrying a book and not a gun.

    Charlotte police chief Kerr Putney told reporters the victim was "absolutely in possession of a handgun".
