A little more than two months after Keith Scott was killed in Charlotte, North Carolina, the local district attorney has decided not to charge the officer who shot Scott.
"It is my opinion that officer Vinson acted lawfully when he shot Mr. Scott. He acted lawfully. I am fully satisfied and entirely convinced officer Vinson's use of deadly force was lawful," Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray said during a press conference.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg officer Brentley Vinson shot and killed Scott Sept. 20 after a confrontation with police outside of Scott's apartment complex.
