‘Black Lives Matter’ group plans Oklahoma City vigil for Terence Crutcher

OKALHOMA CITY–Black Lives Matter OKC is hosting a memorial and vigil for Terence Crutcher, the Tulsa man shot and killed by a police officer.

The event will be Friday night, September 30, at the East 6th Baptist Church from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in Oklahoma City.

The group posted on Facebook:

“We intend to honor the life, promote healing, and stand in solidarity with the family that is left behind. We encourage all to come in peace & hope to progress forward as we continue to pursue justice and accountability.”

Earlier this month, 40-year-old Terence Crutcher was shot and killed by Tulsa Officer Betty Shelby after his car was stopped in the middle of a roadway.

The Tulsa District Attorney charged Shelby with one count of first-degree manslaughter.

Shelby was arraigned on the charge Friday morning.
