Oklahoma deputy charged in suspect's shooting death
TULSA, OK - Prosecutors have charged a white reserve sheriff's deputy in Oklahoma with manslaughter in the shooting of a black suspect.
A second-degree manslaughter charge was filed Monday against 73-year-old Tulsa County reserve deputy Robert Bates.
Police have said Bates thought he was holding a stun gun, not his handgun, when he fired at 44-year-old Eric Harris in the April 2 incident.
A man can be heard apologizing and admitting to shooting a person in a video that documents the killing.
