North Charleston, South Carolina Patrolman Michael Slager, 33, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with murder after a video surfaced of the officer shooting 50-year-old Walter Scott in the back eight times as he fled on Saturday.
The FBI and the Justice Department announced Tuesday they have opened an investigation into the shooting.
The video, taken by an eyewitness, captured a scene that directly contradicts what the officer had reported in his statement.
