Tulsa cop cleared in killing of unarmed black man resigns

Betty Shelby was found not guilty on Wednesday in connection with Terence Crutcher's death

Shelby, who is white, said she would resign August 3.

A lawyer for Officer Betty Shelby says Friday her client sent a letter of resignation to the Tulsa police department.

In May, following a one-week trial, a jury acquitted Shelby of manslaughter after deliberating for nine hours.

A jury acquitted Shelby on May 17 of first-degree manslaughter for shooting Terence Crutcher. I pray for healing for his family.

Shelby was on patrol that night and claimed she shot the 40-year-old father because she thought he was reaching for a gun, although police footage shows Crutcher had his hands in the air.

Shelby, originally a patrol cop, had been working in an administrative role at the police department since she returned to work on May 19, two days after she was acquitted of manslaughter. I am proud to have had the privilege to call myself a Tulsa Police Officer. President Trump seized on the shooting to argue for tougher immigration enforcement and for the abolition of so-called "sanctuary cities" like San Francisco, which prohibits police officers from cooperating with federal authorities on most deportation matters.

During her trial this year, Shelby testified that she believed Crutcher was reaching inside of his auto to grab a gun, although police later said that no firearm was found either on him or in his vehicle.

Prior to returning to work, Shelby had been on unpaid leave since September 22, when prosecutors charged her. McMurray said there had been no agreement in place for a payout if Shelby stayed in the desk job for a certain amount of time.

Ms Shelby testified that she was scared because he appeared to be under the influence of drugs, did not obey her commands and looked like he was reaching inside his vehicle. The city has yet to fully heal from a 1921 race riot that killed 300 black residents and burned down a thriving business district.

Officials released video of the incident a year ago.
