VIDEO: North Charleston Pays $6.5 Million Settlement to Family of Walter Scott, State Record

North Charleston (SC) City Council officials announced approval of a $6.5 million settlement with the Walter Scott family during Thursday night's meeting.

The North Charleston City Council approved the settlement, the largest of its kind in the state of South Carolina, by a 10-0 vote. 

Scott was killed April 4 during a traffic stop by former officer Michael Slager. The police department at first called it a clean shooting. But a cellphone video by a bystander called that into question and led to murder charges for Slager. 

The criminal investigation continues, ABC 4 reports.
