Ex-cop testifies in retrial over 2015 shooting of motorist
June 16, 2017
CINCINNATI (AP) — A former University of Cincinnati police officer gave emotional testimony at his retrial Friday in the 2015 shooting of an unarmed black motorist.
Ray Tensing frequently paused to wipe away tears during his testimony at the retrial over his shooting of Samuel DuBose following a traffic stop.
Jurors deadlocked last November in Tensing's first trial on the murder and voluntary manslaughter charges that he is facing again. He and his lawyer contend the shooting was justified, saying Tensing was in danger of being run over by the vehicle as DuBose tried to drive away.
