Reviewing the videos, neither police dashcam or body-camera footage, shows the slain man pointing a gun at police officers.

What the video does not show is the exact moment Scott is shot on Tuesday by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers, but you can hear four shots fired in the background.

Authorities rushed the man to Carolinas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

“One of the first things I did was to get down to his level, take a deep breath and not say anything for a couple minutes,” Officer Purdy said in an interview with WSOC.
