An attorney representing the family of a black man shot and killed by a North Carolina police officer says the latest video footage released by the police department sheds no new light on whether the man was carrying a gun.

Justin Bamberg told a news conference Tuesday that questions remain over whether Keith Lamont Scott was armed when an officer shot and killed him Sept. 20 at his townhouse complex in north Charlotte.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have maintained that Scott had a gun and that his fingerprints and DNA were found on the weapon, while Scott's family maintains he was unarmed.

The new video doesn't offer a clear view of whether Scott had a gun.

Charles Monett, another attorney for the family, said police have been asked to release an inventory of the items seized from the shooting scene, but he said they have so far refused.

The graphic, 16-minute video released by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police is the latest to show the aftermath of the shooting of Scott.

The video shows Scott standing outside his sport utility vehicle before he was shot. Afterward, it shows officers treating his wounds, pointing them out and checking Scott's pulse.
