7 things to know now: Tulsa officer charged; Yahoo hack; FBI investigating Brad Pitt abuse claims

Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. Tulsa shooting: The Tulsa police officer who shot and killed a man as he walked away with his hands up has been charged with first-degree manslaughter. According to an affidavit filed with the charge, Betty Shelby, the officer who shot and killed Terence Crutcher "reacted unreasonably by escalating the situation from a confrontation with Mr. Crutcher, who was not responding to verbal commands and was walking away from her with his hands held up, becoming emotionally involved to the point that she over reacted.”

2. Video not released: The police chief of Charlotte, N.C., says he will not yet release a video of a police-involved shooting in that city that left a man dead. Chief Kerr Putney cited an ongoing investigation as the reason he is not releasing the tape of the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. Scott’s family has seen the video.

3. Yahoo hack: Chances are if you had a Yahoo account in 2014, you’ve been hacked. The company announced Thursday that at least 500 million accounts were hacked in what is believed to be the largest attack of its kind on an email provider.

And one more

The  FBI is looking into allegations of child abuse against actor Brad Pitt, the bureau confirmed Thursday. The incident being investigated supposedly happened onboard a plane, making it the jurisdiction of the FBI.
