Tulsa police serving mental-health order shoot man; crowd gathers at scene

The sheriff's deputies who fired the shots are white and the police officer is black. All three have been put on routine administrative leave. It is not clear how many times Barre was struck. Police have not confirmed his identity, but said the man who was shot was 29. He said an officer's body camera also might have captured what happened.

Authorities say deputies were attempting to pick the knife-wielding Barre up for a mental health issue, and that deputies had been to his home several times since a civil mental health pickup order was issued May 31.

Jurors at Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial have heard excerpts from the comedian's lurid, decade-old deposition, but explosive sections about him obtaining quaaludes and giving them to women before sex are yet to come.

Dozens of black residents gathered at an intersection near the store within minutes of the shooting.

Community Resource Officer Popsey Floyd spoke with people on the other side of the crime scene tape, trying to calm crowds.

Police in riot gear were on the scene as well, but the situation remained peaceful, according to KTUL.

Tulsa Police released surveillance video of a fatal officer-involved shooting.

We call on TPD and TCSO to turn over the investigation to an independent investigative entity and to cooperate fully with that independent investigation.

Barre's mother says her son was mentally ill. "The police should've sent someone equipped to handle this".
