Here are the eight clips of video, in their entirety and presented chronologically, released Tuesday by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Superior Court Judge Robert Ervin on Tuesday ordered CMPD to release to the Observer surveillance video taken during the protests and riots that followed the Sept. 20, 2016, shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.

The Observer first requested video of the protests from CMPD on July 21.

By mid-August, police officials determined that the video was not public record and that the Observer would have to petition the courts to get it. Police also said they had more than 78 hours of footage.

The Observer refined its request to an estimated 90 minutes of video footage that focused on moments when the confrontations escalated and decided to seek a court order compelling the department to release the information.
