Charlotte shooting victim’s wife saw officer shoot him, attorney says

Charlotte victim family attorneys

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) – An attorney for relatives of a black man shot and killed by an officer in Charlotte says the victim’s wife “saw him get shot and killed.”

Attorney Justin Bamberg spoke Thursday on behalf of the family of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott during a news conference. He says the family was not present because they were still grieving.

Bamberg said: “My understanding is that his wife saw him get shot and killed. That’s something she will never, ever forget.”

He did not give other details about what the wife saw.

Bamberg told media that the family was able to view snippets of multiple videos at the police department, late Thursday afternoon.

It is not clear when, or if, dash and body camera video of the shooting might be publicly released.
