'We will not cover anything up': Investigation begins after Tulsa police kill unarmed black man


The U.S. Department of Justice has opened an investigation after police in Tulsa, Oklahoma fatally shot an unarmed black man named Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16.

In video released by Tulsa police on Monday, officers follow Crutcher to his SUV with weapons drawn. Crutcher, who is not facing the officers as he walks to his vehicle, has both hands raised in the air.

Moments before police open fire, one of the officers can be heard calling Crutcher a "bad dude." The 40-year-old man is standing away from the officers on the drivers' side of his vehicle when one officer fires a stun gun and another fires a single, fatal shot.
