How To See The Gun In Keith Scott Shooting Videos

As of this time, three Keith Scott shooting videos have been released. The videos show different angles, but due to the angles and quality, it can be hard to make out exactly what you are looking at. A lot of people don’t immediately see Scott’s gun because they don’t know where to look, and they may assume he didn’t have one. Below, we will walk you step-by-step though seeing where to look for the gun.

1. Rakeyia Scott Cell Phone Shooting Video

The gun is visible in the Rakeyia Scott cell phone video.

At about the 1:20 mark you first see the gun on the ground:

2. Dash Camera Keith Scott Shooting Video

In the dash camera footage at around the 48 second mark, you can see an object in Keith Scott’s right hand. Is this the gun, or a .380 caliber book?

This video doesn’t give us a very clear view of the gun, but it does give us a different frame of reference for the red shirt officer who stood over the gun, guarding it. In Rakeyia Scott’s cell phone video of the shooting, she panned the camera away while the red shirt officer moved. This left some people questioning if he did, in fact, move over the gun. When you watch the video you can see him making all of the moves mentioned above while the dash camera records. Keep in mind, the gun isn’t visible in these frames, but the location correlates to the first video.

At the 1:15 mark, the gun is just behind the officer, where the red arrow is pointing.

3. Body Camera Keith Scott Shooting Video

The body camera footage doesn’t give us a clear picture of the gun, but presents the strongest evidence that Scott was armed with a gun and not a .380 caliber book. As Keith Scott steps out of the car you can see a gun holster on his ankle. Scott’s right pant leg is pulled up over the holster. Normally an ankle holster would be covered, but in order to draw the gun, Scott had to pull the pant leg up. The pant leg then apparently got caught over the holster after he drew his gun.

In the body cam Keith Scott shooting video, you can see his ankle holster even though his gun isn't clear in the video.

The ankle holster and gun were recovered by officers on scene as evidence.

Of course, all of this evidence isn’t enough for the Black Lives Matter conspiracy theorists. The claim that the gun was planted, and they are trying to present video evidence as proof. The problem is, that they are pointing out an officer dropping gloves on the ground in a different spot. Donut Operator points out their BS:

Please share to get the truth out there and counter the Black Lives Matter misinformation.

    And yet society will in fact swear he had a book because that’s what the woman initially reported. Even when confronted by a reporter she refused to answer question. Unreal!

    The Scott family video has been edited. The white out seen in the video is the edit. As first I did not pay attention to it and going over it frame by frame, i noticed the object on the ground that the cop in red bent down and picked up was not on the ground before the white out.

    Frame by frame of the white out start to finish reveals as the white out fades in, the object is not on the ground and as the white starts fading back into video, the object is on the ground. I have several screen shots where the object is not on the ground as the video starts fading to white and the object is on the ground as the white fades back to normal video.

    Was this the gun? Looking at the object frame by frame the object does seem to have the basic shape of a gun, but it’s unclear. The officer in red does seem to hold it and look down at it in his hand. Some has said it was gloves and the officer in red picks them up. But frame by frame review shows after the officer in red picks up the object after the white out, the black officer does drop what appears to be gloves and they remain on the ground the duration of the video.

    I have several screen shots of what appears to be gloves falling to the ground and changing shape as they fall through the air. IMO these are black latex gloves.

    IMO, the officer in red takes custody of at least 3 items, and protects at least 2 of them, by standing over them.

      I’ve looked at it several times and I fail to see the whiteout. Can you tell us the time stamp?

      • Craig Castleberry

        Another person said the same thing. I live 12 miles from the closest cell tower and Internet too slow for video. I had the video DVRd from CNN and after going into town and looking at quite a few internet videos, it looks like the white out is a CNN edit.

        My apologies

    BLM is a joke. Black Lives Matter?
    More like, “Let find a excuse so we can stir up trouble within the community and accuse the police of murder. Let’s riot, pillage, assault, loot & cause civil unrest.
    Forget the facts, let’s blame anyone we can other than ourselves for the problems in our backyards.”

    The black object directly behind the white pickup does indeed seem to be the gun, and the officer in red certainly pays a good amount of attention to it, straddling it and looking down, when he backs away from Scott. But the body-cam footage clearly shows that object is NOT there immediately after Scott hits the ground, when the officer wearing the cam comes around the pickup. It is during the time between these “no-gun” images and the “straddling” images that the officer in red bends down and appears to touch Scott or something on his person. In all likelihood, he slid the gun away from his suspect, toward the pickup truck, to prevent Scott from using it. What is not clear is whether he pulled it from his hand or from his ankle.

    At 1:02 in the dash cam video, it look like his right hand is holding something. At 48 seconds, at he gets out of the car, I can’t tell anything from a still frame, but watching it in motion, it appears he has something in his hand as arm comes up parallel with the ground for a moment. The way he’s standing in the still frame from the body cam still, the shadows make it hard to see the gun, but his body posture looks like someone holding a gun by his thigh. It certainly looks to me in this same body cam still that his gun is not in his ankle holster, as you cannot see the butt of the gun jutting out towards the back of his leg in the ankle holster. As he backs away from the vehicle he is looking around at officers as if he might be looking for an opportunity to shoot. It’s hard to be certain what he’s thinking of course, but all he had to do was drop the gun and keep his hands clearly visible and he would be fine today.

    Steve is right. The gun is not on the ground where it ended up at 3-4 seconds after the shots were fired (as seen in the body cam video), and is there by about 10-12 seconds after the shots were fired (as seen in the wife’s video). The officer in the red shirt was the only one by the body during that time and presumably found the gun under Scott (as it was also not visible next to Scott in the body cam video) and moved it away from Scott before straddling it to protect evidence.

    The is bull. I saw the video of when the cop in the red first approach the body and there was NO gon on the ground anywhere. The top her is what the entire scene looked like. No Gun. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/88fbe6b2fd7f05f779328429583b33af4f1b81dbc21326b4b847a9da9aa42239.jpg

      And the first thing you do when you approach someone that is armed and still alive?
      Yep, remove the possible threat, secure the area!
      If you look at the dash cam footage you can see the cop in the red is the first at the scene, and whilst you can not see it he shifts the weapon back out of danger zones then steps up aand away from the scene.
      Would you leave a gun with the person on the ground?
      But hey, never let the truth get in the way of a good story…..even a story that ends with riots and more death!!

      All that said, I don’t think at the moment of shooting it was justified, I saw no arm being raised. When the arm is raised, then you put his arse down.
      But these are humans dealing with a fool, yes only a fool would walk around ignoring police with a gun in his hand, in a highly pressurised situation.

        Except, when you watch BOTH videos, they never disarm him. Body cam shows that the officer in red NEVER kicked anything away from Scott, and the dash cam shows that after he came up, he was only holding his service weapon. And his ankle holster? I’ve got a co-worker who wears a black ankle brace for medical reasons that, from a distance looks like a holster!

        And considering how Scott fell forward, it makes no sense that anything he held, including a gun, would somehow fall and go behind him. Considering in the body cam video released, one officer points out that “His hands are clenched! His hands are clenched!” Chances are he should’ve still been clenching whatever he had in his hands.

        Actually there is no conclusive evidence that he had a gun in his hand. And if he didn’t have a gun, how could he comply with police orders? And the ones who made it “a highly pressurised situation” was the police, not Scott.

        Just an FYI, police do plant evidence on people to make their case. Such as the case of Fong Lee; Tom Cox; former NYPD detective admitting he and his unit planted drugs on innocent civilians; and Anthony Lamar Smith. I can keep going, but there’s a lot of cases where police have either been caught, or straight up admitted to planting evidence on suspects.

  • Citizen99

    I just relooked at the released official video. There was NO GUN on the ground anywhere between the grass and when the cop in RED got to the body. If he put one there later, it was PLANTED.

  • Citizen99

    I took a screenshot from the police footage of the area near the feet to the curb of the body. There was NO GUN before the cop in the red shirt went to that area. So it was PLANTED. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c03872729e4e5a52ef4531da8b952909448e44b56b7e6aa0bcac7e3a6870bc92.jpg

      Did whoever blurred out the video forget to blur out the ankle holster?
      Why would Lamont Scott have an ankle gun holster but no gun?
      Or why would the cops plant an ankle holster with no video stills before WITHOUT the holster?
      Would the police “plant” a gun AFTER planting a holster?

      • Mike Bourque

        An empty holster at that…

      • Turkis

        Ever think it might be something other than a holster? I have a co-worker who wears an ankle brace for medical reasons, and from a distance it has been mistaken as an ankle holster from our works security as well as police.

        And to answer your question, yes, police probably would plant a holster if something that looked like a holster was seen in video.

    Don’t you think if he had a book in his hands he would have dropped the book so he wouldn’t get shot?
