"In the matter of the death of Terence Crutcher, I determined that the filing of the felony crime of manslaughter in the first degree against Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby is warranted," Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler said during a press conference Thursday.
Terence Crutcher was shot and killed Friday evening by Shelby. Shelby's attorney said Crutcher was not listening to officers' commands, and her client believed he was armed.
