Jurors who acquitted a white Oklahoma police officer of killing an unarmed black man last year say the officer could have used a less-lethal method to subdue him that could have saved his life.

The foreman of the jury that found Tulsa officer Betty Jo Shelby not guilty of manslaughter in the death of Terence Crutcher on Wednesday also says in a letter that jurors weren't comfortable with the idea that Shelby was "blameless" in Crutcher's death.

The three-page memo was filed Friday in court. The foreman and others don't identify themselves in the memo.

Shelby's defense attorney acknowledged that Shelby could have fired a stun gun instead of a firearm but said the officer had to make a "split-second" decision because Shelby thought Crutcher was armed. No gun was found.

Shelby, who fatally shot an unarmed black man last year, was found not guilty later Wednesday of first-degree manslaughter. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki) Tulsa community leaders say the acquittal of a white Oklahoma police officer who killed an unarmed black man ripped open a long-festering wound.

From the mayor's office to schools and churches, race relations have been terrible in Oklahoma's second-largest city for well over a century.

So black community leaders on Thursday welcomed Mayor G.T. Bynum's mention of racial disparities on the day after a jury of Tulsans found officer Betty Jo Shelby not guilty of manslaughter. Shelby fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher in the middle of a city street after observing his disabled SUV in September.

Shelby said she fired her weapon out of fear because Crutcher ignored her commands to lie down and appeared to reach inside his SUV for what she thought was a gun.

But prosecutors said Shelby overreacted. They said Crutcher had his hands in the air and wasn't combative, part of which was confirmed by police video taken from a dashboard camera and helicopter that showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby, hands held above his head.

Tulsa Police Shooting Was 'Tragic' but Justified: Jury .
The jury acquitted Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby this week after she testified that she feared for her life when encountering Crutcher last year.The jury that acquitted an Oklahoma police officer this week in the fatal shooting of an unarmed driver agreed that she was justified in her actions, but still questioned her decision for pulling the trigger.
