TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Latest on the death of an unarmed black man who was fatally shot by a white police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma (all times local):

Friday 8:47 a.m.

The Tulsa, Oklahoma police officer charged with killing an unarmed black motorist has turned herself in to authorities.

Officer Betty Shelby was then released on $50,000 bond.

Shelby has been charged with first-degree manslaughter for shooting and killing 40-year-old Terence Crutcher. Prosecutors say Shelby "reacted unreasonably" when she shot Crutcher, who wasn't listening to police commands and was walking away from her with his hands held up.

Thursday 4:40 p.m.

The mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is commending police and prosecutors for their quick handling of the investigation into the death of an unarmed black man who was fatally shot by a white police officer.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett made his comments Thursday shortly after the Tulsa County district attorney announced he was charging officer Betty Shelby with first-degree manslaughter in the Sept. 16 death of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher.

Bartlett said -- in his words -- "These are important steps to ensure that justice and accountability prevails."

Video released by police showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby with his arms in the air.

Bartlett promised authorities would "continue to be transparent and ensure the system carries out its responsibility to provide justice."

A prosecutor in Tulsa, Oklahoma, says arrangements are being made for the surrender of a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man on a city street.

Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler filed a first-degree manslaughter charge Thursday against officer Betty Shelby, who shot and killed 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16. Dashcam and aerial footage of the shooting and its aftermath showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby with his arms in the air.

The footage does not offer a clear view of when Shelby fired the single shot that killed Crutcher. Her attorney has said Crutcher was not following police commands and that Shelby opened fire when the man began to reach into his SUV window.

Tulsa police say Crutcher did not have a gun on him or in his vehicle.
