(Reuters) - Charlotte police will release body camera and dashboard videos showing the fatal shooting of a black man that triggered protests in the North Carolina city, but the footage does not show the victim holding a gun, the head of the force said on Saturday. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney announced the release of the video at a briefing, following days of demonstrations at which protesters demanded that authorities allow the public to see clips of the Tuesday shooting. Putney said evidence showed that Keith Scott, who was killed on Tuesday, was holding a gun when he was shot by a police officer, but that the videos themselves were "insufficient" to prove that.
