TULSA, Oklahoma -

Deputies Joseph Byars and Michael Huckeby are still working for the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office after disciplinary hearings Friday morning.
The two deputies were shown on video holding suspect Eric Harris down after Reserve Deputy Bob Bates shot Harris in April.

A source tells News On 6 Byars got no punishment.

The source says the Huckaby has to re-attend a "custody and control" training class, in which deputies learn how to properly arrest and get control of someone who might be fighting deputies.

Harris’ family said the two deputies treated Eric’s life as if it had no value and called the shooting malicious and inhumane.

Deputies, on the other hand, said they were in a high-stress situation and were dealing with an ex-con suspected of selling illegal guns.
