Though photographic evidence place a gun at the scene, the origin of the weapon is unclear - Scott does not appear to be holding a weapon in his hand in the police videos. It's not apparent in the video if he's holding anything shortly before he was shot.
While police claim he was in possession of a gun at the time - a fact both Scott's family and Charlotte protesters have contested - the released video doesn't offer much insight into the alleged gun (this viewer could not make out any weapon).
The body and dashboard camera videos, released Saturday, appear to show Scott exiting and backing away from a white sport utility vehicle with his hands by his sides. There have been marches each night since Keith Lamont Scott was shot to death Tuesday by police.
A fifth day of protests in Charlotte against the fatal shooting of Keith Lamont Scott by police remained largely peaceful after the release of the partial police vehicle dashcam and police body cam footage.
Putney's office also released photos of a gun, an ankle holster and a "blunt".
Police say detectives interviewed witnesses, who confirmed that Scott hadn't complied with officers' demands. "People can interpret anything they want based on one piece of evidence, and I can tell you, I suspect they will based on the video footage", Putney said.
Attorney Justin Bamberg reiterated the family's assertion that Scott was not armed and that he never acted in a threatening manner. "He's passively stepping back".
Ray Dotch identified himself as Scott's brother-in-law. "What we know and what you should know about him is that he was an American citizen who deserved better", he said. While it does not show the fatal shooting itself, it is punctuated with shouts by police to Keith Scott to drop his gun, and is followed by four shots in rapid succession.
Putney, explaining the videos were made public after it was deemed that doing so would not hamper the investigation, also vowed to release DNA evidence. Critics said the law would prevent the transparency needed to quell public anger in the wake of police shootings.
Police said the videos were released for the sake of transparency, and initially live tweeted details about the footage.
The dramatic video released by Charlotte police shows officers with guns drawn surrounding the man just before the shooting.
Two plainclothes officers in an unmarked vehicle were preparing to serve a warrant on someone else when Scott pulled up and parked next to them, according to the document.
The combination of the gun and the marijuana created a public safety hazard, the officers concluded.
But police can be heard repeatedly shouting "Drop the gun!" at the 43-year-old Scott, who died from his wounds Tuesday as his wife stood nearby.
Those commands aren't heard in the body camera video, which doesn't have audible sound until after the shooting. The Family released cell phone video taken by Scott's wife, Rakeyia Scott, that shows part of the encounter but not the shooting.
Police in the press release Saturday gave a fuller account of what caused police, who were looking for another person, to confront Scott. One sign read "Stop police brutality" and another showed a picture of a bloody handprint with the social media hashtag #AMINEXT about the fear of becoming a victim of police.
Many continued their protest for a fourth night on Friday into the early hours of Saturday, defying a recently imposed curfew from midnight to 6am.
The shooting that left Scott dead in a Charlotte apartment complex parking lot sparked days of protest and even a riot, forcing McCrory to declare a state of emergency.
Protests in Charlotte turned violent Wednesday as demonstrators attacked reporters and others, set fires and smashed windows of hotels, office buildings and restaurants in the city's bustling business district.
