An officer in a helicopter said: ‘That looks like a bad dude, too. Probably on something.’

It is unclear why officer Shelby shot Mr Crutcher, 40, who appeared to be complying with police requests and had his hands on his vehicle when he was shot.

Investigations have now been started and Mr Crutcher’s twin, Tiffany, has called for charges.
