Man shot by policeman in Charlotte engaged in shooting in Texas and resisting arrest

Houston Chronicle:
...
In his sentencing, Scott told the judge he fired 10 shots at Anthony Trinidad, an acquaintance he said had threatened him and whom he feared was a thief, in self-defense. The available court records do not provide a full account of the shooting.

Scott also was charged with evading arrest two days after the shooting incident. He pleaded no contest to that charge on Feb 4, 2005 and was sentenced to 15 months in jail. He was convicted of aggravated assault on July 19, 2005.

Scott served most of his prison term and was released on April 1, 2011.

Scott, 43, was killed Tuesday. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said officers were attempting to serve another person with an outstanding warrant when Scott emerged from his car with a handgun and did not comply with commands.
...
He told the judge that Trinidad “put my wife and kids in total fear, and I didn’t know what to do. I was scared to go and talk to him. But I figured I would be less of a man if I didn’t stand up for my family and go and try to tell him, ‘You know, you need to back off.’ I didn’t have any intentions to really hurt the young man.”

To which the judge replied: “You shot at him ten times.”
...
This shooting took place in San Antonio, Texas.  So if Scott failed to drop his gun when ordered t do so by the policeman, it was not the first time he resisted a lawful order.   This evidence raises further questions about the story being told by his supporters in Carolina.

BTW, the gun found at the scene of his shooting in Charlotte had his fingerprints and DNA on it, even though his wife claimed he was unarmed.
