*Update: Tulsa Cops Claim To Have Found a Vial of PCP In Crutcher’s Vehicle After “He Reached In Car” Defense Was Found To Be False

SMH…Here comes the expected victim character assassination that always occurs in the aftermath of these types of shootings. After the Tulsa cop’s initial excuse that she shot unarmed Terence Crutcher because he reached into his car was proven false by video footage that showed that his door was closed and window rolled up, a police spokesman now says that officers found the drug PCP in the vehicle. Check out the b.s. details below…

Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker confirmed to the Tulsa World that investigators recovered a vial of PCP in Terence Crutcher’s SUV. Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby fatally shot Crutcher on Friday while responding to a report of a stalled vehicle.

Police say Crutcher did not have a gun on him or in his vehicle, and video footage of the shooting showed him walking toward his SUV with his hands in the air.

At a press conference Tuesday, attorneys representing Crutcher’s family said they did not know whether drugs were in Crutcher’s vehicle. But attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons said even if drugs were present, Shelby still had no justification for shooting the man because Crutcher did not pose a threat.

A police spokesman says the Oklahoma officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man had a stun gun at the time but did not use it.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Shane Tuell tells The Associated Press that officer Betty Shelby was certified on the use of stun guns. Police say Shelby fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Friday while responding to a report of a stalled vehicle.

Shelby’s attorney, Scott Wood, told the Tulsa World that Shelby opened fire and another officer used a stun gun when Crutcher’s “left hand goes through the car window.”
