Walter Scott was shot on April 4, 2015, in North Charleston, South Carolina after a routine traffic stop by police officer Michael Slager. Fearing an outstanding warrant, Scott fled the scene and was briefly chased and caught by Slager. After a scuffle, Scott ran again and was shot in the back by Officer Slager. A video taken by eyewitness Feidin Santana captured much of the incident, but some facts between the video and the officer's account were disputed.
