A white police officer in Charleston, South Carolina, faces a murder charge over the fatal shooting on Saturday of a 50-year-old black man, Walter Scott, marking a remarkably swift move for justice in a fatal police incident.
Footage of the shooting, which occurred around 9.30am after Scott was pulled over for a traffic violation, reportedly shows officer Michael Slager firing eight times at Scott, who is running away.
Local newspaper the Post and Courier published a still from video which appears to show Scott fleeing as Slager points a gun at his back.
