On Sept. 27, Tulsa, Oklahoma residents will come face-to-face in opposing protests in the aftermath of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher’s death.

Crutcher was shot by Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby after his SUV reportedly stalled on a north Tulsa road on Friday, Sept. 16.

Police encountered the motorist while en route to a domestic disturbance call.

Initial reports claimed Crutcher did not comply with officers’ requests. However, dashcam and aerial footage proved otherwise.

Crutcher held up his hands and was unarmed.
