The fatal South Carolina shooting of Walter Scott was caught on dashboard camera, according to North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey, and the video will likely be released Thursday. The footage could provide further information about the incident, which went viral on Wednesday after a witness' video began circulating online, according to the Charleston City Paper.
"From what I understand, the video that I saw was not all the video that exists," Summey said at a news conference Wednesday. He said he has not watched the dash cam footage, which came from a nearby patrol car. Spencer Pryor, a spokesman for the North Charleston police department, confirmed to the Associated Press that the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division hoped to release the video Thursday after a prosecutor examines it.

The original video motivated the disciplinary action, the Scott family attorney told the Chicago Tribune. "What if there was no video? What if there was no witness, or hero as I call him, to come forward?" L. Chris Stewart said.
