shots at walter scott, an unarmed man who is seen running away. watch as he later appears to plant a stun gun next to the victim. today, the mayor took swift action. >> he will be charged with murder. >> reporter: the officer is michael slager. he originally claimed he feared for his life when he pulled the trigger. >> we can't have any longer standards that are set so low that all that an officer needs to do is say they feared for their life as a justification for taking a life. >> reporter: alicia garza, one of the cofounders of the black lives matter movement in oakland applauded the swift action against the officer. >> we need a full and fundamental transformation of what placing looks like in the country. >> reporter: like changing the police officer's bill of rights and the system that allows officers to investigate themselves after shootings.
1:41 am
as civil rights attorney john bures watched the video. >> he is a good 25, maybe 30 yards away, he is still shooting. >> reporter: he says it seems clear that slager had no legal standing for pulling the trigger. >> you are not supposed to use deadly force. you are not supposed to do that. it is defense of others and yourself. >> what do yes know about the victim? it was a traffic stop. >> reporter: absolutely. a broken taillight. the guy who was actually pulled over was a father of four who owed back child support. that may be why he was running but he had no history of violence. >> and the police officer wasn't a rookie. he had been there a while. >> reporter: he had been there a while. and tonight, he is behind bars. >> yeah. christin, thank you for that. town of north charleston where this happened is also about 50% black according to the justice department. the police department there is about 80% white. you know all the mandates

about saving water? tonight, a lot of people aren't. a new report says water use statewide was down just 3% last month. 3%. when compared to 2013. and the drought is only getting worse. look at this map. it is extreme or exceptional in two-thirds of our state. we look deeper into the report and found some people are saving and saving a lot. but others? not so much. betty yu is with the savers, but first, mark kelly takes us to woodside. one of the worst water wasting town ins the bay area. >> reporter: if only everyone in woodside could be like debbie mendelson. >> i have to walk the talk. >> reporter: but hundreds of debbie's neighbors don't care like she does. >> hundreds of people don't have enough to drink. >> reporter: sucking up thousands of gallons to feed their green yards.
1:43 am
one staffer says last week crews started irrigating the field three instead of four days of week. while the governor ising for fields to get ripped up, we found fresh sod seemingly ready to roll out in woodside. >> we took our patch of lawn out. >> reporter: not debbie. her grass is gone, replaced with these woodchips. >> there has to be a general attitude shift on how people think about water. >> reporter: debbie has not convinced her neighbors or town council to launch a large scale water saving plan just yet. but she is also not ready to back down. >> let the high-end users we have the do our part. >> reporter: i spoke with the deputy town manager who says woodside could do more, but maybe he has to look no further than just across the bay to newark where betty yu is now. >> reporter: mark, they really are using much less water here and it really shows. just check out this house
1:44 am
behind me for example, the homeowners ripped out the lawn last summer and are think about putting in some drought- friendly plants. this is quickly becoming a trend here in this part of alameda county. judging by the dry lawns, fake lawns, and completely revamped ones. block after block, homeowners in newark are paying attention to the drought. >> this is an area that is all regular grass lawn. >> reporter: tom elken uses 70% less water now. >> i was around here going to graduate school in 1977-78 which i think was really the last bad drought. and i just thought we all should pitch in a little bit. >> reporter: turns out residents like tom are pitching in a lot. they cut their water use by 20% since 2013. >> we were very proactive in facing the drought head on and helping our customers conserve
1:45 am
water. >> reporter: but it certainly doesn't hurt that they are offering rebaits for swapping out the grass. >> i'm proud to do it. you know what i mean? >> reporter: what do you say to your neighbors in woodside? >> well, what i say to our neighbors in woodside is it would be great if they could step up their conservation as well so that there's water available for all of us in the state. we are all in this together. >> reporter: well, this district also has some pretty strict rules. right now, you can only water your lawn once a week until june. the district also follows up on water waster reports by making phone calls, sending letters, and paying a few visits and liz action it seems to be working. >> we all have to pitch in right now. thanks betty. take a live look outside. sort of the calm after the
1:46 am
storm if you will. it was a pretty wild 24 hours with a rainbow over the bay at the end. this was the view from our roof cam this afternoon. brian hackney says there are still a few showers out there i'm hearing. >> that's right. the low pressure is headed out, but on the topside of the low, there are a few showers working their way into the bay area tonight. it was quite a wild day around parts of the bay area. most of the moisture has moved east and some snow is falling in the mountains tonight. as far as the radar is concerned, there is one cell in 580 stretched from pleasanton and dublin. we have all the details in the forecast which looks pretty high and dry for the next week or so. we will do in a few minutes. but before it eases up, it was nuts. as liz is about to tell you. >> that's right brian. as you mentioned weather really ran the gamut today. we saw hailstorms in vallejo.
