Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, released dashcam and aerial footage, 911 calls 
and police radio traffic with unusual swiftness following last Friday's 
shooting death of an unarmed black man by a white officer.

.

But what actually transpired on the Tulsa street between Terence Crutcher 
and officer Betty Shelby remains murky.

.

WHAT THE VIDEOS SHOW

.

Crutcher's fatal shooting can be seen on two different videos provided by 
authorities  one from a police helicopter and the other from officer Tyler 
Turnbough's dashboard camera. They both show the 40-year-old Crutcher 
walking with his hands in the air toward his SUV, which is stopped in the 
middle of the street and straddling the center line. A female officer is 
following him.

.

As Crutcher approaches the driver's side of the SUV, more officers walk up 
and Crutcher appears to lower his hands and place them on the vehicle. A 
man inside a police helicopter overhead says: "That looks like a bad dude, 
too. Probably on something."

.

The officers surround Crutcher and he suddenly drops to the ground. 
Someone on the police radio says, "I think he may have just been tasered." 
Almost immediately, a woman's voice yells on the police radio: "Shots 
fired!" Crutcher is left lying in the street.

.

The officers slowly back away. Crutcher, his white shirt stained with 
blood, lies on the ground alone and unattended for nearly two minutes 
before an officer puts on medical gloves and begins to examine him.

.

Emergency medical responders arrive about four minutes after he is shot.

.

WHAT THE VIDEOS DON'T SHOW

.

The videos don't show what happened when Shelby first encountered Crutcher 
and the roughly two minutes before other officers arrived.

.

No dashcam footage exists from Shelby's car because she didn't activate 
her emergency lights  which in turn switches on the camera  when she came 
upon the abandoned vehicle in the roadway. No body camera footage exists, 
because Tulsa police have not implemented the devices for officers, 
despite receiving a federal grant to do so last year.

WHAT POLICE HAVE SAID

.

A Tulsa police spokeswoman initially told reporters that Crutcher refused 
requests to put his hands in the air. After the footage was released 
Monday suggesting otherwise, spokeswoman Jeanne MacKenzie said she was 
relying on reports from officers at the time.

.

Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said Monday that Crutcher did not have a 
gun on him or in his SUV. He promised a thorough investigation.

.

Police have held back many details in the case, citing the investigation, 
but Sgt. Dave Walker confirmed Tuesday that investigators found the drug 
PCP in Crutcher's vehicle.

WHAT THE OFFICER'S ATTORNEY HAS SAID

.

Shelby's attorney, Scott Wood, has told the Tulsa World the situation 
unfolded for nearly two minutes before the police footage started. He said 
Crutcher repeatedly ignored Shelby's commands and didn't respond to her 
questions. He said Crutcher reached toward his pockets or into them 
several times against Shelby's orders not to do so.

.

Wood said Shelby has completed drug-recognition expert training and 
thought Crutcher was acting like he might be under the influence of PCP.

.

Shelby was concerned about Crutcher reaching toward his pockets because a 
person with a weapon often touches it to make sure it's still there, Wood 
said.

.

He said she drew her handgun after Crutcher walked toward the police car's 
passenger side and started to put his hand in his left pocket. He said she 
radioed dispatch to report that she was with someone who wasn't complying 
with her demands.

.

WHAT THE FAMILY AND THEIR ATTORNEYS HAVE SAID

.

The family and their attorneys say the video clearly shows Crutcher wasn't 
threatening the officers. The attorneys also provided an enlarged photo 
from the 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.

.

Whether Crutcher possessed or used drugs is also irrelevant, the lawyers 
said.

.

"If a case like this with clear video can't be appropriately dealt with 
justly, then what case can be?"
