Keith Lamont Scott was shot dead by Black police officer Brentley Vinson earlier this week in Charlotte, North Carolina, and now, new cell phone footage recorded by Scott’s wife has been released, showing the final moments before her husband was killed.

In a video released by the family’s lawyers, the wife of Scott can be heard calmly telling officers that her husband was unarmed. Mrs. Scott, who filmed the entire encounter from a short distance away, tells the officers that Scott had just taken his medication for traumatic brain injury.

“He doesn’t have a gun,” Mrs. Scott is heard saying. “He has a T.B.I. He’s not going to do anything to you guys. He just took his medicine.”

“Drop the gun!” an officer screams. “Let me get a f*cking baton over here!”

That’s when Mrs. Scott urges her husband to get out of the car, yelling, “Keith, don’t let them break the windows! Come up out the car … Keith, get out of the car! Keith! Keith! Don’t you do it! Don’t you do it, Keith!”

“Drop the gun!” an officer shouts again.

Moments after hearing Scott’s wife plead for the officers to not shoot, multiple gunshots ring out. “Did you shoot him?! Did you shoot him?!” she yells. “Did you shoot him?! He better not be f*cking dead! He better not be f*cking dead! I know that f*cking much! I know that much! He better not be dead!”

At the end of the visual, you see a lifeless Scott laying in the street while his wife questions whether or not an ambulance had been called.

Although not confirmed, people are speculating that a gun was planted near Scott after he was shot. As previously reported, Vinson shot at Scott because he believed he had a gun, but according to the family, Scott was holding a book.

Vinson has since been placed on paid administrative leave.

Tamar Braxton Insists Divorce Isn’t A PR Stunt: I Think That’s Disgusting



Tamar Braxton is adamant that her divorce from husband Vince Herbert is not a ratings ploy for her WE tv reality show Tamar & Vince. The Braxton Family Values star stopped by The View on Friday, February 23 and addressed rumors that the split is just a plot line.

“I wish I could say that a lot of times it’s made up, just so I can hide behind the truth,” she said. “But in this situation, I absolutely have no reason to lie about my marriage or the things that are happening in my marriage for ratings. I think that’s disgusting and I would never sell my soul to the devil like that.”

“I have a regular marriage, and in regular marriages, like everybody else, things happen,” she continued. “In my marriage, it was just to a point where I felt like divorce was the only option that I had left. I definitely filed for divorce — that’s not a lie.”

Braxton, 40, and Herbert, 45, share a 4-year-old son, Logan Vincent — and she says he’s their main priority.

“I think the bigger picture of everything is that we have a responsibility to my amazing 4-year-old son, to raise him in the most comfortable, amazing, loving, secure household that we can,” she said, adding, “That’s why we don’t live together.”

Braxton — who was joined by Herbert on air — also addressed the rumor that Herbert had impregnated another woman. (Last month, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Braxton claimed an unidentified woman told her that “Vincent Herbert is having a baby,” and that Herbert had then called Braxton “begging and lying” despite a “protection order.”)

“Here is the thing about people being in your business: keep people out your business,” said Braxton. “And let me just address the meltdown that I had on Instagram. That was my fault that I put myself in a position where I opened up the floor for people to give their opinions on my marriage, and I have to take responsibility for that.”

Herbert himself insisted the allegation was “absolutely” false.

“And all the other allegations are just not true — I’m just not that kind of person,” he said. “I love this lady with all my heart, I love my family with all my heart, and I will never stop fighting for my family and trying to make it be great.”

“Vince and I have been through a lot, and the reason that I filed for divorce was not because of those rumors,” added Braxton. “I filed for divorce because we work together, he’s my baby father, we’re together each and every single day, we’re attached at the hip and it just got to be too much. We just couldn’t figure out how to figure it out.”

As for a possible reconciliation? While Herbert is on board — “absolutely,” he said — Braxton isn’t so sure.

“It’s okay not to know,” she said. “We still work together now. We do work together well, so that’s one thing that I feel like we can definitely sustain and we’ve always been able to sustain, as well as our connection and our responsibility to being parents to Logan.”
