    TULSA, Okla. - Quick Facts:

    Tulsa and the global community continue their reaction Monday in the days after a deadly officer-involved shooting.

    During a traffic stop on Friday near 36th and Lewis, a Tulsa Police officer shot and killed Terence Crutcher, 40.

    TPD identified the officer who fired as Betty Shelby. Another officer, Tyler Turnbough, deployed his Taser at Crutcher.

    Crutcher’s family told FOX23 that his car was stalled at the intersection; TPD says Crutcher approached them and failed to obey commands.

    State Senator Kevin Matthews and other community leaders took a look at dash cam video. They told FOX23 the video shows Crutcher walking away from police with his hands raised as the shots were fired. No weapons were found on him.

    Tulsans spent the weekend responding to the case, another piece in a national conversation over officer-involved shootings.

    Community groups involved in nation-wide efforts shared their hopes to improve police and community relations. Read MORE about their cause and how it relates to Crutcher’s case here.
