A copy of the dash cam footage from North Charleston police officer Michael Slager’s patrol car in the moments before he shot Walter Scott, 50, was released by the State Law Enforcement Division.
In the video, Slager pulls over Scott, and a foot chase later ensues.
The video only shows the moments before Scott was shot dead.
Scott was pulled over around 9:30 a.m.

Feidin Santana recorded the actual shooting and said he began doing so after he heard a Taser being deployed. “Before I started recording, they were down on the floor. I remember the police [officer] had control of the situation,” Santana said. “He had control of Scott. And Scott was trying just to get away from the Taser. But like I said, he never used the Taser against the cop.” “As you can see in the video, the police officer just shot him in the back,” Santana said. “I knew right away, I had something on my hands.” Remember when, "Stop or I'll shoot" used to be a thing?
