Police dashcam video shows a now-former South Carolina state trooper named Sean Groubert repeatedly shooting a Black man named Levar Edward Jones as Jones reaches into his car to produce his license after being pulled over for a seatbelt violation. The video of the Sept. 4 incident was released Wednesday night by law enforcement officials. Groubert has been fired and charged with felony assault and battery. Jones survived the shooting.
In the video, Groubert can be heard asking to see the Jones's license. When Jones then reaches into the car, Groubert yells, "Get out of the car! Get out of the car!" and begins shooting.
