Home / National News / University of Cincinnati Cancels Classes as City Braces for Deadly Shooting Footage


(CINCINNATI) — The University of Cincinnati has canceled classes Wednesday as the city braces for the release of video footage showing the shooting death of Samuel DuBose.

Footage from university police officer Ray Tensing’s body cam is set to be released along with the result of the grand jury’s investigation, authorities said.

Samuel DuBose, 43, was killed during a traffic stop on July 19 near the University of Cincinnati’s campus, authorities said, noting that DuBose was stopped because his car did not have a license plate in the front.

Dubose apparently refused to provide a driver’s license, produced an open alcohol bottle and a struggle ensued, during which Tensing was knocked to the ground, UC Police Department chief Jason Goodrich said during a news conference last week.

Goodrich said the officer fired one shot into Dubose’s head.

Tensing was on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure, Goodrich said last week.
