In the two minutes and 12 seconds video an officer can be seen pointing a gun in Scott’s direction, screaming at him to “drop the gun.” At the same time Scott’s wife can be heard pleading with an officer not to shoot her husband...
“Don’t shoot him, he has no weapon,”
She tells the officers that her husband has a TBI, or a traumatic brain injury sustained during a motorcycle accident in October 2015 and then assures them, “He’s not gonna do anything, he just took his medicine”.
With her pleas going unheeded police open fire on Keith Scott who then can be seen lying motionless on the ground.
After the shooting Rakeyia Scott can be heard asking officer “Did you shoot him?” and then can be heard repeating over and over..
"He'd better live, he'd better live, he'd better live,"
Here is the video...
