CHARLOTTE -- Charlotte police have released body and dashboard camera footage of the fatal shooting of a black man.

A file sent to the media Saturday also includes pictures of a handgun and marijuana that police say Keith Lamont Scott possessed. (See gallery below)

The shooting of Scott on Tuesday has prompted several days of demonstrations that coalesced around protesters' demands that police video be seen by the public.

Police have said Scott was shot on Tuesday because he refused commands to drop a handgun. Residents have said he was unarmed.

Police Chief Kerr Putney said at a news conference Saturday that Scott "absolutely" had a gun but that it's not shown in his hand in the videos. Putney said the video supports other evidence that all must be considered together.
