Video surveillance released of fatal King Street altercation in downtown

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Authorities have released surveillance video of a King Street altercation in downtown Charleston that turned deadly, taking the life of a 27-year-old man.

Video released on Thursday shows police, emergency crews and firefighters responding to King Street in the early morning hours of April 26 in connection to an altercation.

According to police, a verbal altercation started between two groups of men shortly before 2 a.m. Witnesses reported to police that 27-year-old Clint Seymour was "sucker punched," and fell to the ground, hitting his head on the pavement.

Seymour was in a coma for two days before dying of his injuries on April 28.

The video shows emergency crews responding to the scene and a firefighter truck blocking the road as crews responded to the incident.

Charleston police have charged 24-year-old Dalton Ellis Clarke of North Charleston with involuntary manslaughter in Seymour's death.

Investigators originally arrested Peter John Dudinyak in the case, but his charges were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor's Office.
