Disturbing imagery of a Long Island police officer shooting a 16-year-old student with a taser has gone viral after first hitting the internet late Wednesday.

The Daily Mail is noting that the footage, which was taken by a fellow attendant of Walter G O’Connell Copiague High School in Suffolk County, features a young African-American man trying to run away from a police officer after he was allegedly witnessed smoking marijuana on school grounds.
