The foreman wrote that many on the jury were not comfortable with the concept of Ms Shelby being "blameless" over Mr Crutcher's death.

Tulsa police spokesman Sgt. Shane Tuell would not speak specifically about Shelby but said internal investigations end when officers are no longer employed by the department. She was allowed to return to the department days later in an administrative role.

Shelby was a field officer when she fatally shot Terence Crutcher last fall, and she was suspended from her job until a jury acquitted her of manslaughter in May. "Don't make this happen,'" said Shelby in a 60 Minutes interview that aired in April.

Shelby sent the release Friday via the Tulsa branch of a national police union.

In her statement, Shelby thanked her colleagues and the people of Tulsa and extended prayers for the healing of Crutcher's family. "I have had the honor of working with the finest officers in the nation", the statement read.

Mr Crutcher's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court in June against Ms Shelby and the city of Tulsa.
