Unarmed man fatally shot by police officer

10 Apr

A man by the name of Walter Scott, 50, was fatally shot by police officer, Michael Slager, 33, after what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop in South Carolina on Thursday.

Slager shot at Walter Scott a total of eight times after he ran away from Slager for an unknown reason.

Slager was charged with murder after a cell phone video surfaced of him dropping a taser next to Scott in what appeared to be an attempt to make it look like Scott stole the taser from him.
