Cop Who Shot and Killed Black Man Indicted

Officer kills man through car door in his driveway

Ernest Satterwhite, a 68-year-old Black great-grandfather, was shot to death after a slow-speed chase as he parked in his own driveway, by a 25-year-old White police officer who repeatedly fired through the driver's side door.

Investigators determined that North Augusta Public Safety Officer Justin Craven broke the law. A prosecutor, in a rare action against a police officer, sought to charge him with voluntary manslaughter, punishable by up to 30 years in prison. But the grand jury disagreed, indicting him on a misdemeanor.
