Keith Scott's Family Orders Autopsy, Results Released

Keith Scott's Family Orders Autopsy, Results Released

Police said they shot Scott after officers felt threatened when he repeatedly refused orders to drop a gun.

The county medical examiner's autopsy results have not been released.

We believe the first shot fired was the shot that struck Keith in the back and ultimately killed him.

"I think it means closure, hopefully, at least for the first part of this very raw, open wound", attorney Charles Monnett told reporters outside the church.

An independent autopsy commissioned by Keith Scott's family concluded that Scott died from two gunshot wounds - one to the left back and another to the left abdomen. She also warned them that a traumatic brain injury he sustain in 2015 motorcycle accident impaired his ability to respond. Police said Scott was armed and the shooting was justified; Scott's family has contended he had no weapon.

Charlotte resident Michelle Cromwell, 40, a friend of Scott and his wife Rakeyia, admitted she was angry when she penned a song titled "Black Lives Matter, Too" after his death.

"Was there a gun in his ankle holster?" Protesters questioned why Scott was shot when he was backing away from police.

Ferrer looks forward to vigorously fighting these charges that we believe are trumped up", said Ferrer's attorney Philip Hilder. Authorities said they interviewed more than six victims who said they paid Backpage.com to post ads promoting prostitution.

"I don't see that evidence on the video that has been made available thus far", Monnett said.

Scott's body had already been autopsied by the medical examiner in Charlotte when it was sent to Newberry for a second evaluation. They said Scott pulled into the parking lot and parked beside the unmarked police vehicle officers were in, then began rolling what they believed to be a marijuana "blunt".

Raykeyia Scott also clarified who she speaking to in her cell phone video when she says "Keith!"

"What does the Charlotte Police Department have to gain by saying it was a black officer who shot your husband?" asked interviewer Gayle King of CBS.

Scott said in the CBS interview Thursday that she believes one of the other officers at the scene shot her husband, and that race played a role in the shooting.

Chief Putney said Scott was "absolutely in possession of a handgun".

State Bureau of Investigation agents, at the request of Mecklenburg District Attorney Andrew Murray, are conducting an independent inquiry into the shooting.
