What could there be prior to the start of the video which could have an impact on whether or not the fleeing Scott was a grave and imminent danger to the officer or the community at large?

Obviously if Scott said he was running off to his secret Mad Scientist Lab to release his flying poison spraying robotonator on the tri-state area and Slager had reason to believe this was a real thing, that'd be reason for shooting Scott.
However, it seems Slager would have led with that tidbit.
So is there something which
a) could have been likely to occurr prior to the beginning of the video recording which would have an impact on the propriety of shooting someone in the back?and
b) is likely to have been something which Slager would have failed to mention already?
At the moment, my imagination fails me.
But I am open to ideas from the more insightful and creative among us.
You couldn't imagine any such situation either?
