The Tulsa police officer who shot and killed a black man Friday was "never so scared in her life", according to an account of her side of the story given by her lawyer to ABC News.
The family of Terence Crutcher is "hoping that America will open their eyes" to issues of police violence and racism after the unarmed black man was fatally shot by a white police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A female officer is following him. "And he looked like a really good man. And they will just have to get better and better and better", he said. One unidentified caller said the driver of the stalled vehicle was acting strangely, adding, "I think he's smoking something".
Days after a Tulsa man was shot and killed by a police officer, the city's police department has deleted its Twitter account after receiving dozens of hateful and violent messages. In Tulsa, an unarmed man with his hands in the air? Crutcher is left lying in the street.
Melvin Hall, an attorney for the Crutcher family, said Shelby and other officers on the scene could not have known about Crutcher's criminal history. But those orders can not be heard in the audio from the dashcam video, which starts as another patrol auto pulls up to the scene, showing Crutcher walking toward the SUV with his hands up as Shelby follows him, apparently with her weapon drawn and pointing at Crutcher.
PM Sharif flays India for Kashmir brutalities
The spokesman also addressed the question of US policy on Kashmir, saying, "The US position on Kashmir has not changed". Sharif is expected to strongly raise the Kashmir issue and may offer proposals on how the issue can be tackled.
Crutcher's father, the Rev. Joey Crutcher, told CNN that if the situation was reversed and his son was the shooter, "Terence would have been charged immediately".
A second officer appeared to fire his Taser at Crutcher around the same time that Shelby opened fire.
"Our police handled those terrorist attacks exactly right, and they likely saved a lot of lives", she continued.
The video, in addition to the position of Terence Crutcher's hands, shows he was walking slowly away from officers and toward his SUV when he was shot. Also Tuesday, Sgt. Shane Tuell confirmed Shelby had a stun gun at the time but did not use it. The officer's attorney later said she was afraid Crutcher was trying to reach for a weapon. Crutcher didn't respond, simply dropping his head while continuing to look at Shelby, "kind of under his brow", Wood said.

None of the video showed whether the window was open or closed. Police have said that he exited his auto with a weapon, CNN reported.
In Shelby's account, she encountered the SUV blocking traffic on her way to a domestic violence call, and approached the auto to see what was going on. He then pulled his hand away and put his hands up in the air, even though he was not instructed to do so, which Shelby found odd, Wood said.
Shots were fired when he reached in through the window of the vehicle, Mr Wood said.
The family and their attorneys say the video clearly shows Crutcher wasn't threatening the officers. We saw that again this weekend in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota. The attorneys also provided an enlarged photo from police footage that appears to show the SUV's window rolled up, which would contradict Shelby's claim that Crutcher was reaching inside his vehicle.
