"Video appears to show North Charleston Officer Michael Slager shooting at 50-year-old Walter Scott as he was running away."

A white South Carolina police officer, Michael Slager, is charged with murder after law enforcement officials viewed a video that shows the police officer repeatedly shooting a black victim, Walter Scott, in the back 8 times.

The confrontation started over a faulty tail light and ended with Scott fleeing before being shot. If not for an innocent bystander filming the whole ordeal, we may not have had a true visual of what actually happened.

Slager claims that Scott tried to steal his stun gun, but the video shows him running away as Slager started shooting. Scott fell to the ground, and Slager ran over to him and ordered him not to move and put his hands behind his back when he cuffs him.

It appears that Slager walks back to the area he shot from, picked something up, and walked back towards Scott and drops the item at his feet.
