NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Dash cam video just released shows a black man killed by white officer in North Charleston, South Carolina, got out of his car and ran after a traffic stop for a defective taillight.

Cellphone video shot by a witness shows the officer — Michael Slager — fired eight shots from a distance at Walter L. Scott, who was struck multiple times in the back.

Police also say they will take a second look at a previous complaint about an incident in which the officer used a Taser but was cleared.
