Several media outlets, including The New York Times and NBC News have obtained footage of Keith Scott's fatal encounter with police. In the video, his wife, Rakeyia Scott, tells her husband to get out of the car, and pleads for the police not to shoot him, as he has a TBI (traumatic brain injury).

She is heard saying, "Don’t shoot him. Don’t shoot him. He has no weapon. He has no weapon. Don’t shoot him."  Police are heard telling Scott to "drop the f*cking gun," but his wife sas that he did not have a gun, and no gun is readily visible in this video.

"He is not going to do anything to you guys. He just took his medicine," Scott's wife tells police. She pleads to her husband, "Keith, don’t let them break the windows. Come on out the car."

Soon after, several gunshots are heard and Scott is seen on the ground. "Did you shoot him? Did you shoot him? Did you shoot him? He better not be f*cking dead. He better not be fucking dead. I know that f*cking much. I know that much. He better not be dead. I’m not going to come near you. I’m going to record, though. I’m not coming near you," says his wife.

The video leaves many questions. The gun that was reported and leaked in pictures is not seen, and no clear view of Brently Vinson, the black officer who reportedly shot him.
