Mourners Pay Respects to Walter Scott, Man Shot by Police Officer

Mourners were gathering Saturday morning to remember Walter Scott, the black man shot to death by a police officer last weekend in North Charleston, South Carolina. The funeral is being held in Summerville, about 20 miles from where 50-year-old Scott was killed after fleeing a traffic stop one week ago. Henry Middleton, 67, is a resident of Charleston, North Carolina, and was a friend of Scott’s. On Friday afternoon, people stopped by a wake to pay their respects for the father of four, whose open casket was covered in an American flag and a Dallas Cowboys sign — his favorite team. Scott was stopped for driving with a broken taillight, and ran from the officer, Michael Slager.
