The Tulsa Police Department in Oklahoma released yesterday (Monday) the footage of a shooting that that occurred on Friday. During the incident, a police officer shot and killed a 40-year-old African American man named Terence Crutcher.

In the video, Crutcher is seen holding his hands in the air and approaching his car in accordance with the police officers’ instructions.

Due to the position of the police officers, the last moments prior the gun shot are not seen on the recording. According to the police department, a female officer shot Crutcher once immediately after a male officer Tasered him. The police officers waited about two minutes before they offered to help Crutcher, who was fatally wounded by the gun shot.

The two police officers are currently on leave with pay until the investigation into the incident concludes. The lawyer of the female officer said that her client thought that Crutcher was armed, acting out of the ordinary and not following her orders.
