On Friday, Sept. 16, a Tulsa Police officer shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher after his SUV stalled in the middle of street.
Atlanta Black Star reported today that the motorist was leaving school before his car stalled in the middle of a north Tulsa road.
Initially, Tulsa Police spokesperson Jeanne Mackenzie told reporters that Crutcher failed to put his hands up doing the encounter with police.
However, recently released footage appear to contradict her telling of events.
In the aerial video, Crutcher can be see holding his hands up as he moved back to his car.
The dash cam footage also refutes Mackenzie’s claim that the man did not have his hands up.
