FBI Finds No Civil Rights Violations in Deputy Shooting of Black Man in Texas

A white sheriff’s reserve deputy who killed a black man in Tulsa, Okla., did not commit civil rights violations, the FBI has found following an investigation.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Tulsa County sheriff’s office held a news conference to announce the FBI findings.

“They found no wrongdoing,” Sheriff Stanley Glanz said at a news conference.

The FBI said it is open to “re-evaluating the matter should new information or evidence come to the surface.”

The shooting was captured by a camera worn by a deputy. After a shot rings out, the reserve deputy, 73-year-old Robert Bates, is heard saying, “I shot him. I’m sorry.”

Bates is already charged with second-degree manslaughter.
