Walter Scott was an unarmed 50-year-old African-American man who was gunned down with multiple shots in a vacant lot by Michael T. Slager, a White South Carolina police officer. Scott was stopped by Slager for having a broken taillight on his Mercedes-Benz. A nearby witness saw Scott running away from the officer who pulled out his gun and shot Scott repeatedly until he fell to the ground. After video was released of the incident, Slager — who had claimed Scott had taken his stun gun and was threatening him — was arrested and charged with murder.
