SHARE Video released showing killing of black Oklahoma suspect

TULSA, Okla. — Authorities have released video showing the killing of a black suspect by a white reserve sheriff’s deputy during a recent arrest in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The video of the April 2 incident shows a Tulsa County deputy chase and tackle 44-year-old Eric Harris, whom they accuse of trying to sell an illegal gun to an undercover officer.

While the deputy is subduing Harris on the ground, a gunshot rings out and a man says, “Oh, I shot him. I’m sorry.” Authorities say the shooter was 73-year-old reserve deputy Robert Bates, and that he meant to use his stun gun.

Harris screams, “He shot me. Oh my God,” and a deputy replies: “You f—ing ran. Shut the f— up.”

Harris then says he’s losing his breath. The deputy replies, “F— your breath.”
