University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing has been charged with the murder of Samuel Dubose during a traffic stop that was all caught on Tensing’s body cam. Above is the mugshot of the indicted killer cop. The white University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot a black motorist earlier this month after a traffic stop was indicted Wednesday on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter.
The shooting took place on July 19, when Samuel DuBose, an African-American man, was shot and killed in his car in the Cincinnati suburb of Mt. Auburn following a brief struggle with University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing, who is white. Prosecutors said Wednesday that a warrant has been issued for Tensing's arrest.
At a Wednesday afternoon news conference, prosecutor Joseph Deters described the shooting as "the most asinine act I've ever seen a police officer make" and said that the 26-year-old Tensing "should never have been a police officer."
