They said Scott walked out of the entrance with the crowd.
They described an officer shouting at Scott, then a quick succession of gunshots.
The witnesses differed in their recollection of what one of the officers said.
Amesbury heard, “I told you to stop. Stop.”
Two witnesses interviewed Sunday heard, “Drop it.”
A fourth witness, interviewed Saturday, heard, “Get down,” “Put it down,” or “Get out of the way.”
A second anonymous witness said Sunday he saw Scott pull up his shirt and turn toward the shouting officer. Then he saw the man get shot, drop to his knees and fall face-first in front of the entrance.
“There wasn’t even time for someone to react,” the second witness said. “The guy didn’t pull a gun. There was no gun in his hand, there was no gun on the ground.”
The second witness said he was interviewed by homicide detectives and gave them the same account.
The first anonymous witness also didn’t see Scott make a threat.
“I certainly did not see the guy do anything with a gun that would threaten anybody,” the first witness said Sunday. “It appeared to me that if he had guns on him, that they were literally in his pocket or in his waist.”
The first witness also was interviewed by homicide detectives about the shooting.
