Ohio ex-cop who shot black motorist will not face new trial

Ohio ex-cop who shot black motorist will not face new trialOhio prosecutors said on Tuesday they will not pursue a third trial against a white former university police officer whose two previous trials for fatally shooting a black motorist during a traffic stop ended with hung juries. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters told reporters that jurors said to him, “We will never get a conviction in this case.” The jurors were both black and white, Deters said. The incident occurred in July 2015, when former University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing stopped Samuel DuBose, 43, for missing a front license plate on his car.
