Tulsa street could be renamed after man shot, killed by Tulsa officer

A Tulsa street could be renamed for a man who was shot and killed by a Tulsa police officer.

At the Tulsa city council meeting tonight there is expected to be a discussion of changing 36th Street North to Terence Crutcher Street at the request of Crutcher's family.

Crutcher was shot and killed by Officer Betty Shelby in 2016.

A jury acquitted Shelby of manslaughter last year.

The estate of Terence Crutcher filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the City of Tulsa.
