4:04 am
other people who were remaining calm were able to calm down other people who were getting tense during parts of the protest last night. officers were paying attention to people out there. we are seeing they were able to enforce -- they didn't enforce the curfew because of the peaceful protest. what people were most upset about is what you guys really touched on the most, the release of that video of the shooting we're hoping to get more information about that today. and if any more protests come out. we'll be sure to keep you updated. reporting live in charlotte, sarah rosario. >> thank you very much. >> the oklahoma police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black man is facing charges. betty shelby has been charged with first degree manslaughter in the death of terence crutcher. in the last few hours, shelby was booked and released on $50

4:06 am
officer shelby suspected crutcher to be high on pcp. she said he wouldn't follow commands and seemed to be reaching into the car. >> i've got a subject. >> but the video seems to tell a different story. while the lead investigator in the case told the tulsa world that a vial of pcp was in the car, no gun was found. legal observers say charges against officers, especially this quickly, are unusual. >> we're seeing public pressure. we're seeingor in rare cases we're seeing faster movement towards prosecuting officers. >> the first step in the long road to justice for terence crutcher and his family began today. >> crutcher's family is mourning the father of four. blake mccoy, nbc news. >> the events in charlotte and tulsa continue to serve as a backdrop for tumultuous presidential race and with the first presidential debate just three days away, donald trump
