Footage Shows Fatal Encounter Between Police, Keith Lamont Scott

NEWSVideo Release of Keith Lamont Scott's Shooting Depends on 'Timing': Charlotte Officials	Email

Rakeyia Scott is heard telling police her husband had a traumatic brain injury, did not have a gun, and posed no threat. "I know that fucking much", Rakeyia Scott says. Police have said Scott was holding a gun when he was shot, but witnesses have claimed he was merely holding a book.

Earlier on Friday, NBC News obtained video taken by Scott's wife of the moments just before the 43-year-old was shot.

"Don't shoot him. He has no weapon ... he ain't do anything", his wife can be heard in the video. He better not be fucking dead.

The smartphone video does not conclusively answer the question of whether he was armed or not. Police said Scott was not the suspect that officers sought but that he was holding a handgun, which investigators recovered from the scene, and posed a threat because he was not obeying police orders to remain inside his vehicle and drop the weapon. Police have shown the footage to Scott's family, and they have requested the it be released. "We want the public to take a look at this tape and see what was in the video before he was shot, and what was there afterward, and ask how it got there", Eduardo Curry says.

"Keith. Don't do it. Keith get out the auto", she says. I'm going to record, though.

"A thorough investigation relies on multiple factors, and I can tell you one piece of evidence will never, ever make a good case", Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Chief Kerr Putney told reporters Friday morning. She pleads with the police to not shoot Scott, and then films officers standing and kneeling over Scott after he has been shot.

The 2 ½-minute video released by the family does not show the shooting, though gunshots can be heard. Vinson is African-American. Vinson was not wearing a body camera at the time, but the other officers who responded to the incident were, police said.

No change in hospital antibiotic use overall in recent years
The threat of resistant bacteria was the only topic on the agenda of an all-day "high-level meeting" that took place this week. It was the overprescribing and misuse of antibiotics over the past 50 years that allowed these superbugs to emerge.

"It's a personal struggle, but I have to do what I think is best for my community", Putney said. How about that? Yes, we here, over here at 50.

POLICE OFFICER: Is everybody good?

Rakeyia Scott: Ain't nobody touch anybody, so they all good.

She keeps repeating "he better live".

I swear he better live. Scott's wife yells several times, before at least four gunshots are heard. How about that I'm not coming to you guys, but he'd better live.

That's OK, did you all call the police?
