DuBose, growing agitated and believing he did nothing wrong, starts his engine rather than exiting the car as Tensing requested he do. Fearing DuBose was going to flee, Tensing appears to reach into the car, at which point DuBose appears to put the vehicle in drive. Officer Tensing's gun can be seen pointed at DuBose and fires as the vehicle begins to accelerate. Tensing is thrown to the ground as DuBose's car appears to speed away. His foot may have actually been stuck on the accelerator as DuBose suffered a fatal headshot wound, which likely killed him instantly.
Today, the Hamilton Co. Prosecutor Joe Deters shocked the public when he announced a grand jury had returned an indictment for murder against Officer Tensing. Deters' office released a full, unedited video of the traffic stop, including the shooting and the aftermath, as captured by Officer Tensing's body camera. The full video can be viewed below. It includes very graphic scenes so please view with caution.
Tensing claimed he fired at DuBose because he feared he was going to run him over. Tensing is clearly thrown to the ground as DuBose's car speeds away, but it doesn't appear to show him in any danger of being run over by DuBose's vehicle. DuBose's vehicle traveled nearly a block down the street before crashing and coming to a stop. Tensing's video shows DuBose slumped over the driver's seat with blood splattered inside the car from the gunshot wound. Another officer near the scene appeared to support Tensing's account, but the grand jury obviously wasn't convinced and chose to indict the police officer for murder. Tensing is the first Cincinnati police officer charged for murdering a person while in the line of duty.
UPDATE: I see that the actual charges filed by the prosecutor includes a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter, in addition to the first degree murder charge. That's a charge that's more likely to stick with a jury.
