American policeman kills a man - level 2
There was a regular traffic stop in South Carolina, USA which went very wrong. The black driver ran out of the car and the white policeman reacted.
The officer shot him with a stun gun and then with a normal gun. The policeman shot the driver five times and killed him. Somebody who was walking by filmed this. He sent the video to The New York Times and the police officer was charged with murder.
Difficult words: stun gun (a gun which can stop somebody but cannot kill him/her), charge (to say officially that somebody did something wrong and the person must go to court), murder (killing a person).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
