Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma have released video of a suspect being shot by a white deputy who says he accidentally pulled his gun instead of his taser.

Undercover video of Eric Harris was taken earlier this month during a sting operation in Tulsa.

Police say Harris ran and after being tackled by officers a deputy shot Harris with his gun instead of his taser.

The officer can be heard on the video saying "I'm sorry."

Harris died an hour later at the hospital.

The reserve deputy who fired the gun, Robert Bates, is a wealthy 73-year-old insurance executive with close political ties to the sheriff.

Prosecutors will now decide whether Bates will face charges.

Family members are demanding an independent agency review of the shooting.
