Man Killed by Police Officer Was Tulsa CC Student

September 21, 2016

Terence Crutcher last week became another in a string of unarmed black men shot and killed by white police officers. He was a student at Tulsa Community College.

Leigh B. Goodson, the college's president, released a statement Tuesday in which she said that everyone at the college was saddened by the death. She said some employees have been asked questions by local police officials and are cooperating.

"It is important to me that I share what Terence Crutcher represented to our college community," Goodson said. "He was a student who had openly expressed to our advisement staff and to others his desire to be successful in college. Like so many of the thousands of students at TCC, he brought to TCC his talents, hopes and dreams of creating a successful life by dedicating himself to completing a degree."
