TULSA, Okla. (AP) – An investigation into a reserve Tulsa County deputy’s shooting and killing an unarmed man found the deputy suffered a high-stress phenomenon known as "slips and capture."

Reserve deputy Bob Bates has said he thought he was holding a stun gun when he shot 44-year-old Eric Harris on April 2 as Harris struggled with deputies trying to arrest him.

Results of the investigation were turned over to prosecutors for review.
