Slager reportedly “feared for his life” and shot Scott in the back eight times as he fled down a sidewalk after the officer said he took took Slager’s stun gun from him at a traffic stop. This incident comes after many similar situations across the country, such as New York, Cleveland, and Ferguson, Missouri.

“Walter Scott was in a relationship with the mother of Fadol’s longtime girlfriend and served as a father figure to Fadol for a number of years,” Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement. “Obviously this is a very emotional and difficult time for all parties involved, and our thoughts are with Fadol and his loved ones after this tragic event.”
