Keith Lamont Scott, a Black man from Charlotte, North Carolina, was killed by police officer Brently Vinson.
Scott was sitting in his car reading while waiting for his son to be dropped off after school when officer Vinson approached and killed him. Vinson has since been placed on administrative leave.
A too familiar story, the police claimed that he “posed an imminent deadly threat to officers.” Yet, according to witnesses, Scott was only armed with a book.
