A witness photo of a gun at the feet of Keith Lamont Scott following his fatal altercation with police officers has been confirmed by authorities to be authentic.
Whether or not Scott was armed has been a major issue of contention between local NAACP, religious leaders, rioters and city officials. Authorities who have seen the video and images said unequivocally that Scott was armed during the incident, but opponents wanted proof. This image provides that proof.
The image was obtained by NBC Charlotte and confirmed by police.
The main question that remains is whether or not the proof, the facts, will matter to those set on rioting in Charlotte tonight.
