The Associated Press - December 28, 2017 9:13 am

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The mother of a man who was shot by Tulsa police on Christmas says her son had a history of mental illness and could have been high on a psychedelic drug.
Police say 31-year-old Jacob Craig was shot Monday by Officer Jairo Calle, who was responding to a report of a disturbance with a weapon near the Hillcrest Medical Center. They say Craig was naked and pointed a gun at Calle after he arrived on the scene.
Craig’s mother, Kim Flanagan, tells the Tulsa World that her son was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression after witnessing the death of his pregnant fiancée about 10 years ago.
Tulsa Police Capt. Mike Williams says Craig was shot multiple times.
