Jury selection for the murder trial of a former police officer is set to begin Monday in Charleston, South Carolina.
In April 2015, Officer Michael Slager pulled over Walter Scott for a broken taillight. After a short conversation between the two, dashcam video shows Scott running away from the car.
Slager chased him on foot and fired eight shots, killing the 50-year-old man.
