Tulsa police officer charged with manslaughter over Terence Crutcher death

Betty Shelby, the Tulsa police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man, has been charged with manslaughter.

Another officer on the scene struck the victim with a stun gun.

The incident was caught on camera, although the exact details of the exchange between the police and Crutcher remain unclear.

Crutcher’s death provoked rallies and demands for justice.
