Video Shows Tulsa Police Shooting Unarmed Oklahoma Man Terence Crutcher
Tulsa Police have released dashboard camera video showing the fatal shooting of Terence Crutcher, an unarmed black man, by Officer Betty Shelby.
"he video is very disturbing. It's very difficult to watch," Police Chief Chuck Jordan said at a press conference. He and several officials said Monday that "justice" will be found, and there will be no cover-up of what happened. Jordan and others said they could not comment extensively on the shooting or the video, citing the open case.
The dashcam video shows Crutcher walking toward his SUV with his arms held in the air, as Shelby follows behind him with her gun drawn and a second officer approaches with his Taser drawn. He has his back to her and the other officer. Crutcher appears to lean toward the SUV with Shelby at his side and the other officer behind him. A single shot can then be heard and other officers run toward the SUV.
