A South Carolina police officer has been charged with murder after this video surfaced of him shooting an African-American man who was running away in the back at least eight times.

Officer Michael Slager shot Walter Scott over a traffic stop that determined that Scott had a Family Court warrant out for his arrest.

North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey just announced that Slager will be charged with murder, and that “when you make a bad decision, don’t care if you’re behind the shield or a citizen on the street, you have to live with that decision.”

The officer claims that he fired the shots in self defense, but as this video clearly shows, the youth was running away and did not pose a threat to the officer.

Watch the full video courtesy of South Carolina’s Post and Courier (WARNING: VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED):
