Back in September 2016, Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer Betty Shelby has been charged with felony manslaughter in the first degree, Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler told reporters Thursday.
Shelby’s lawyer, Shannon McMurray, confirmed her resignation to The Associated Press.
In her statement, the five-year veteran of the police department thanked supporters and said she was proud to be a Tulsa cop, and added that the killing of Terence Crutcher “was a tragedy for everyone involved, and I am sorry he lost his life.”
She went on: “I pray for healing for his family. I will continue to pray for the unity of our community, the safety of our citizens and our police officers.”
