A white south carolina police officer was arrested and charged with murder Tuesday after video showed him fatally shooting a fleeing, unarmed black man in the back.

Officer Michael Slager stands over Walter Scott after the shooting.

North Charleston Police Officer Michael T. Slager, 33, can be seen shooting 50-year-old Walter Scott after a confrontation on Saturday, according to The Post and Courier. Slager chases Scott and shoots at him eight times in the video recorded by a passerby and obtained by The New York Times.

Scott died there, though it wasn’t clear if he died immediately.

The graphic video raises questions about Slager’s original assertion that he used his gun because he felt endangered.
