Despite claims by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg (N.C.) Police Department that Keith Lamont Scott, 43, was armed with a gun when black Police Officer Brentley Vinson shot him to death, eyewitness Taheshia Williams maintains that Scott was armed with nothing but a book and that a white police officer is responsible for killing Scott. "He got out the car with his hands up because the police told him to get out the car. He got out the car. The book fell off his lap, the book he was reading. He got out the car and then he walked around his car to the back of his car. When he walked back there, when his wife was running down saying, No, stop, don't do that,' by the time she got right here to where his car was, they had shot that man four times. It was not a black officer that killed him; it was a white officer that killed him. He was bald-headed. "I'm telling you what I believe, that it's a cover-up," Williams said. "They made a mistake and they're doing their best to cover up that mistake."
"I actually saw the shooting," Williams continued. "I saw that man die. I saw him take his last breath. I saw him move and then there was nothing; he didn't move no more after that." When reporters asked Williams again did Scott have a gun, she insisted that he did not.
