CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A police source confirms to WBTV that a gun reportedly found near the body of Keith Lamont Scott has Scott’s fingerprints, DNA and blood on it. The source also told WBTV the case in the gun was loaded.

Scott, 43, was killed Tuesday while police were serving a warrant on another person at The Village at College Downs apartment complex on Old Concord Road.

In a video released by the family Friday, officers can be heard yelling at Scott to “drop the gun” but his wife, who is shooting the video, tells them he doesn’t have one.

To me it’s just another wasted death that I’ll blame on Obama for laying the groundwork of distrust of the police. Well maybe the groundwork was already there but Obama sure lite the fire & fanned the flames.

The only “case” with regard to a gun that I’ve ever heard of is the one you carry the gun IN and the only thing they are “loaded” with is the gun itself.
