Neighbors Dispute CMPD Account Of Police Shooting
In northeast Charlotte Tuesday, a Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer shot and killed a black man. That prompted a night of angry protests. Police say they’re still investigating but here’s what we know:
Officers went to an apartment complex off Old Concord Road to serve an arrest warrant. They saw 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott sitting in a parked car. Police say he got out of the car with a gun, and that’s when officer Brentley Vinson, also an African-American, fired.
WFAE’s Tom Bullock went back to the neighborhood this morning and says neighbors have a different account. He talks with WFAE's David Boraks.
