TULSA, Okla., Sept 22 (Reuters) - The white Tulsa police officer who fatally shot a black man has been charged with manslaughter and a warrant has been issued for her arrest, the Tulsa County District Attorney said on Thursday.

Officer Betty Shelby was charged with first degree manslaughter for the death of Terence Crutcher, 40. The incident was captured on a widely broadcast police video and the case is one in a series that has raised questions of racial bias in U.S. policing.
