The video shows police officers handcuffing Scott and then trying to save his life in the parking lot of his University City apartment complex. Officers in the video said they found three bullet wounds on Scott– on his wrist, abdomen, and on the back of his shoulder.The State Bureau of Investigation is continuing to look into Scott's death.
While a gun is not seen in the footage, one officer is heard telling another to “come watch this gun.”

“We made it known to Mr. Trump’s campaign that we were not going to grant a request of suspending our operations so he could somehow try to legitimize his ideological positions,” Swaine told The News & Observer. “The landmark is very important – it’s not just a political backdrop.”Then there's this:
He [Swaine] said that since news of the museum’s decision broke last week, museum staff members have received threats via phone calls and social media.Classy!
“The callers were threatening to come over and burn down the building and to shoot up the building,” he said. “They’ve lessened in frequency this week, but they’re still coming in.”
Swaine said callers have used foul language and racial epithets, and he said museum employees are now recording the calls. But he also noted that he is appreciative of support that has come via social media and in calls from across the nation.

“Several members of the band refused to play the national anthem and others ‘took a knee’ during the performance, with the result that roughly a dozen band members disgraced themselves on the football field this past weekend,” said Jeff Andrulonis, the CEO of the ESPN affiliate’s parent company Colonial Media and Entertainment, in a press statement Tuesday.The Post notes that it appears that ESPN Fayetteville is the first media outlet to dip its toe into the Kaepernick waters. Saturday will be a proud day for all the kinda-racist people down in Fayetteville.
Andrulonis said his decision not to air Saturday’s game against the University of South Florida on ESPN Fayetteville.com (WFAY AM/FM) is to “protest the protest.”
ESPN Radio’s national outfit, which is headquartered in Bristol, Conn., referred to the game as “local programming” in a statement (via Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch) and noted that the decision to air the game falls “strictly in [the local station’s] purview.”
