Meanwhile, family members and community leaders who have viewed the footage said it clearly shows that Crutcher's hands were in the air when he was shot.
"We saw that Terence did not have any weapon. Terence did not make any sudden movements. We saw that Terence was not being belligerent," one of the attorneys for the family, Damario Solomon-Simmons, said at a news conference separate from one police held. U.S. Attorney Danny C. Williams said the Department of Justice will conduct a separate civil rights investigation into the shooting. "The Justice Department is committed to investigating allegations of force by law enforcement officers and will devote whatever resources are necessary to ensure that all allegations of serious civil rights violations are fully and completely investigated," he said.
Tulsa Police Sgt. Shane Tuell confirmed that relatives were shown the recordings Sunday ahead of the planned public release. "We wanted them to see it before it was released so they wouldn't be blindsided by it," Tuell said. "We wanted to be able to have that intimate time with them, with their attorney, to see if they had any questions or concerns. "With something of this magnitude, we're trying an approach that we believe is necessary to further that transparency."
