The shooting happened in the parking lot of a Circle K on Broad River Road Sept. 4 after Lance Cpl. Sean Groubert pulled Levar Edward Jones over for a seatbelt violation.

In the video released Wednesday night, Groubert asks for Jones’ license. Jones then checks his back pocket before going back to his vehicle.

Groubert then fires several shots at Jones before Jones falls to the ground.

While Jones is on the ground with a gunshot wound to the hip, he asks Groubert “What did I do, sir?”

Groubert then asks Jones if he was hit.

“I don’t know what happened,” Jones says in the video. “I just grabbed my license.”

Groubert explains to Jones the reason he shot at him was because Jones dove head first in the vehicle.

“I just asked for prayers for Mr. Jones’ family,” Rev. Kenneth Spry said. “I ask for prayers for his family, because I know this causes a change in life.”

Spry, who is a reverend at Bethlehem Baptist Church and was at the scene, said he’s elated by what he calls justice.

Groubert is facing an assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature charge, which could carry 20 years in prison.

“They didn’t waste a lot of time because of the public stewing and brewing over this situation,” Spry said.

Trigger-happy pigs.
