Instead of celebrating the success of her album One Way, which is No.1 on Billboard’s gospel music charts, Tamela Mann went on Facebook Live Saturday to talk about the death of Terence Crutcher who was shot by a Tulsa police officer last month.

Mann and her comedian husband, David, were emotional when they took to Facebook Live with their son to speak out against the shooting of unarmed black man Terence Crutcher, 40, by police officer Betty Shelby in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Sept.16. While details are still emerging about Crutcher, who stopped his SUV in the middle of a road, blocking two lanes of traffic and reportedly shouting that his vehicle was going to blow up, local police have revealed that PCP was found inside his vehicle.

Police arrived at the scene after 911 calls were received reporting that “an abandoned vehicle was blocking the street and a man was running away, warning that [the vehicle, left running] was going to blow up,” according to local news station KFOR.

The Manns, however, spoke about their distress over watching new reports about unarmed black men dying at the hands of police officers in recent years.
