The Keith Lamont Scott shooting in Charlotte has been an emotionally charged case for the City of Charlotte and the Country.

Scott has been painted as an innocent victim that the police planted a gun on but not only is the evidence overwhelming that he threatened Charlotte Police with a gun but now a document has surfaced that revealed his violent past including threatening to kill his wife with a gun and that law enforcement should consider him a threat.

As the Gaston Gazette reported, Scott’s wife obtained a temporary restraining order about a year prior to the fatal incident:

“On Oct. 5, a Gaston County District Court judge granted his wife a temporary restraining order. The court order told Scott not to go near his wife, three of their children and the children’s schools.  He was not allowed near their Gastonia apartment they’d called home since April 2014, according to court documents. He was told to turn over a black 9mm handgun he owned illegally.”

Further details about the restraining order include that he said he was a “killer” and a box was checked saying that Scott had threatened her with a gun.
