Did North Charleston, S.C., Police Try to Aid Walter Scott After Shooting?
The graphic and now familiar video showing Officer Michael T. Slager shooting Walter L. Scott does not include images of officers aiding Scott, leading some people to question whether police tried to save the man’s life.
But according to accounts by officers, there was a flurry of activity to help the mortally wounded man.
There were at least seven officers on the scene, according to the incident report. In the three-minute video made public Tuesday, officers walk around the scene, pull up Scott’s shirt and briefly check his pulse.
Slager’s actions and the seeming lack of effort to give medical care have angered people within the community.
