Keith Lamont Scott Autopsy Released
The results of an autopsy done on Keith Lamont Scott have been released.
Scott is the disabled Charlotte man who was gunned down by Brentley Vinson, a black officer, as he waited for one of his seven children to get off the school bus.
As previously reported Scott’s family maintains that he did NOT have a weapon, just a book that he was reading.
The official autopsy report for Keith Lamont Scott, 43, who was shot and killed by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer in September, was released on Monday.
The report states that Scott was shot three times, once in the posterior chest, once in the abdomen and once in the left arm. Abrasions and lacerations were also reported in by the medical examiner.
The toxicology report in the case shows Scott was on a number of sedatives/anticonvulsant drugs at the time of his death including Amantadine, Diazepam, Gabapentin, Nordiazepam and Promethazine.
Scott was fatally shot by a police officer on September 20, 2016. The shooting raised nation-wide controversy having differing stories from Scott’s family and the police.
Scott’s wife blames race for his death and does not believe that police are telling the truth about the African American officer who shot her husband. She also publicly stated that her husband was unarmed and shot unfairly.
CMPD later released the dash cam video of the shooting. The video shows Scott stepping back from officers with his arms down by his side when he was fatally shot in the back, abdomen and wrist. However, police say he had a gun and they were afraid for their safety and the safety of nearby civilians.
“Arms down by his side when he was fatally shot in the back, abdomen, and wrist”—SMH, so he didn’t have a gun pointed at officers.
