Grand jury indicts cop who shot and killed Walter Scott for murder 

Michael Slager, 33, was formally indicted on a murder charge on Monday after the fatal shooting of Walter Scott, an unarmed 50-year-old black man, was captured on video on April 4.

The white former South Charleston police officer sacked following the fatal shooting of Walter Scott on April 4 has been formally indicted on a murder charge.

Michael Slager was charged with murder only after cell phone footage emerged of him firing eight times at Scott, an unarmed 50-year-old black man who was running away from him after a traffic stop.

‘The jury will make up its own mind after it sees the video and hears the other testimony,’ said prosecutor Scarlett Wilson who announced Slager’s indictment on Monday. No trial date has been set.
