TULSA, OK - A police sting went terribly wrong in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A reserve deputy accidentally fired his gun instead of a stun gun, and killed a suspect.
The video is graphic, but it does tell the story of what happened on April 2nd. It shows the suspect, Eric Harris, appearing to sell a pistol and ammunition to an undercover officer. When Harris realized it was a sting, he ran from officers. One of the officers caught up with Harris and wrestled him to the ground.
That's when a 73-year-old Reserve Deputy Robert Bates can be heard on the video shouting, "Taser, Taser." That's done to warn other officers he's about to deploy a Taser. But that reserve officer accidentally pulled the trigger on his gun instead of the Taser. He reportedly fired a shot into the suspect, killing Harris.
Reserve Deputy Bates screamed and apologize for shooting Harris. Bates has been charged with 2nd degree manslaughter.
