>> Is the family doing okay? I mean, I know it's an ordeal going through these court hearings.>> Well, the family just buried their son on Monday, so they're still in the processing and grieving.>> Crutcher's death two weeks ago, set off the latest string of protests over police violence against minorities.

Shelby had been responding to another call, when she saw Crutcher, whose car had broken down and was blocking a road. She says he did not respond to her questions, or her commands to stop. And that she fired because she was in fear for her life. But video of the incident shows Crutcher with his hands in the air, shortly before he was shot.

Police said no weapon was found on him, or in his car. His death was soon followed by similar shootings in Charlotte, North Carolina, and El Cajon, California, which intensified the debate over racial bias in law enforcement. Shelby will next appear in court on November 29th. She faces at least four years in prison if convicted.
