TULSA - A Tulsa police official confirms the drug PCP was found in Terence Crutcher's vehicle.

Crutcher was shot by Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby Friday night during a traffic stop. Crutcher, 40, was not armed, nor was a weapon found in his vehicle.

Police are not releasing any details about the investigation, but a police official who is not authorized to speak about the case confirms PCP was inside Crutcher's car.

Scott Wood, the attorney representing Officer Betty says she believed Cruther was under the influence of narcotics, possibly PCP. Wood says Shelby made that assumption based on Crutcher's behavior before the shooting.
