Federal Officials Say They Won’t Pursue Charges Against Former Oklahoma Officer Who Fatally Shot Unarmed Black Man
The US Department of Justice announced Friday there wasn't enough evidence to "pursue federal criminal civil rights charges against" a former Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer who shot an unarmed black man in 2016. Former Officer Betty Shelby shot and killed Terence Crutcher, 40. Shelby, who is white, said she fired out of fear when she killed Crutcher, who had his hands above his head. She was acquitted of manslaughter in May 2017 and resigned from the department in August 2017.
