UPDATE: The Tulsa police officer who shot Terence Cruther has been charged with first-degree manslaughter by the Tulsa D.A.

.

Tulsa is in crisis.

.

For the second time in less than two years, the Oklahoma boomtown is reeling from a fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man at the hands of white cops.

.

In April 2015, a wealthy, 74-year-old volunteer deputy at the Tulsa County Sheriffs Office shot and killed 44-year-old Eric Harris during a drug-buy sting operation gone bad. The convicted pay-to-play cop, Bob Bates, apologized after he accidentally fired his handgun instead of his less-lethal Taser.

.

Now the Tulsa Police Department is in the national spotlight over the shooting of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher, a father of four who had his hands up last week when he was fatally blasted by Officer Betty Jo Shelby and tased by a fellow cop.

.

The video is so clear cut. His hands were in the air. The window was up. He was unarmed. He was moving slow. He was not a threat. He was not a fleeing felon, Crutchers twin sister, Tiffany Crutcher, told MSNBC on Wednesday.

.

Officer Shelby prejudged him he didnt have a chance to live. And its just not right, added the sibling, who is joining the chorus calling for criminal charges against the Tulsa cop. Oklahoma authorities and the U.S. Department of Justice are investigating the case to determine if Crutchers civil rights were violated.

.

Tulsa police quickly released raw dashcam and helicopter footage Monday showing the moments leading up to Crutchers death. The next day, a Tulsa homicide sergeant told the Tulsa World a vial of PCP was found in the victims vehiclean allegation the Crutcher family lawyer, Benjamin Crump, dispelled as a red herring.

.

Police say Shelby and fellow officers were responding to calls about a vehicle abandoned in the middle 36th Street North near Lewis Avenue at around 7:30 p.m Friday. One 911 caller said, There was a guy running from it and I think hes smoking something.

.

His tan SUV, parked in the middle of 36th Street North, was surrounded by multiple police squad cars. Crutcher came into the frame walking away from cops and toward the drivers side of his vehicle. An officer in the helicopter is heard saying, time for a Taser, I think, before declaring, that looks like a bad dude, too. Probably on something.

.

Crutchers hands were raised in the air before his right hand lowered and began to fidget in his pants pocket in front of his drivers side door. Then he was shot with a single bullet and a Taseralmost simultaneouslybefore dropping to the ground, his blood pooling across his chest.

.

Officer Shelby, 42, can be heard almost going hoarse when she screams, Shots fired! into her police radio. The officers at the scene left Crutcher in the road, failing to render medical aid for at least a minute, footage shows.

.

All the while, Shelbys husband, fellow Tulsa officer and Iraq War vet Dave Shelby, was in the police helicopter circling above the deadly encounter.

.

Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said Monday there was no gun on Crutcher or in his vehicle. I want to assure our community, and I want to assure all of you and people across the nation who are going to be looking at this, we will achieve justice, period, Jordan told reporters.

.

Jordan has been trying to tend to Tulsas strained relationship between law enforcement and the black community. The top cop received a standing ovation when he said, Black lives matter to us, during a July forum on race, the Tulsa World reported.
