A gun recovered at the scene of the fatal shooting of a black man by police in Charlotte, North Carolina, was loaded and fingerprints, DNA and blood from the weapon matched those of the victim, CNN reported on Friday.

News of the gun came after the family of shooting victim Keith Lamont Scott released its own video of the encounter, which sparked three days of protests. The family continued to urge officials to release their own recordings of the slaying.

The moment when a black police officer shoots Scott, a 43-year-old father of seven, cannot be seen in the two-minute video recorded by his wife, Rakeyia, who can be heard urging officers not to open fire.

"Don't shoot him! He has no weapon," she can be heard telling officers as they yell at Scott, "Drop the gun!" About a half-dozen gunshots can be heard in the video released to U.S. media, followed by her scream, "Did you shoot him? He better not be dead."

The video was filmed from a nearby curb as the drama unfolded in a parking lot in front of Rakeyia Scott.
