    TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Tulsa County sheriff says he doesn't believe training records were falsified in connection to a volunteer deputy who fatally shot a man after mistaking his handgun for a stun gun. Sheriff Stanley Glanz said Monday he's known the volunteer, insurance executive Robert Bates, for about 25 years. Bates is charged with second-degree manslaughter in the death of Eric Harris, who was shot after running from officers during a sting investigation. Harris' family questions whether Bates was adequately trained. The Tulsa World newspaper, citing unnamed sources, has reported some of Bates' supervisors were told to certify him after he failed to meet some qualifications. Glanz also says action will be taken against two deputies at the scene, including one who cursed at Harris as he lay dying. Glanz wasn't specific.
