Police are now saying that the shooting of an unarmed black man in North Charleston, S.C., by a police officer was not capture on the dashboard camera of the officer charged with murder in the case.
South Caroline Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry said none of the cameras mounted on any of the police vehicles that responded to the scene, which was captured by a civilian on his cellphone.
"I have been told that none of the cameras have the incident itself," Berry said, adding that he has not seen the video. "Most of it will be driving to the scene, parking the vehicles."
Berry said officials are reviewing "potentially hours of video," because video from all the cars that responded is being reviewed.
