A man by the name of Sam Dubose was pulled over by University of Cincinnati police for a missing front license plate before an ensuing struggle with an officer resulted in his death Sunday night.
Cincinnati Police Lt. Colonel James Whalen, who is leading the investigation, released few other details on the shooting. He said Dubose did not have a weapon in the car. When asked what the threat was to the officer, Whalen said, “We haven’t had a chance to talk to the officer yet to find that out.”
A vigil for Dubose is planned for 6:30 p.m. Monday near the site of the shooting at Rice and Valencia streets.
Some community members have questioned what the UC officer was doing away from campus.
Tensing was placed on administrative leave. Cincinnati this is sad when will this violence stop? What are your thoughts on this matter?
