A woman in Charlotte, North Carolina, streamed live video on Facebook after her father was shot dead by police. The woman, whose Facebook name is Lyric YourAdorable Scott, and others in the neighborhood are at the scene and have been confronting police about the shooting.

The man has been identified by neighbors and family as Keith Lamont Scott.

You can watch the live video below (Warning — Language):

The video starts with the woman recording officers at the crime scene.

“The police just shot my daddy four times for being black,” she says. “They Tased him first and then shot him.”

More than 20,000 people have been watching the video after the Tuesday afternoon shooting.

According to the Charlotte Observer, the shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Village at College Downs apartment complex on Old Concord Road.

The officers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant, but the man who was shot was not the person they were attempting to take into custody.

Police told the newspaper the man that was shot had a gun in his car. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney told the newspaper the officers felt their lives were endangered and at least one officer shot the man.

According to police, the man was spotted by the officers in a parked car. He got out of the car with a gun in his hand, police said. He then got back into the car.

“The subject got back out of the vehicle armed with a firearm and posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers who subsequently fired their weapon striking the subject,” police said in a press release.

But his family says the man did not have a gun, and was in his car waiting for his son to get off the school bus.

The woman in the video could be heard saying that her father was shot while reading a book in a car. She also said he was disabled.

Police said they began performing CPR and requested an ambulance. The man was taken to a hospital, where he died, according to Fox 46 News.

The shooting happened about 3:50 p.m., police said.

Officers recovered a gun at the scene, and an investigation is ongoing, police said.

The two videos dont show that the victim had a gun, what it does show is that the Chief is not willing to give ALL video of shooting, smells like a coverup, and I for one do not stand with law enforcement on this one
