Ohio Cop Indicted On Murder Charge In Traffic-Stop Shooting

Ohio Cop Indicted On Murder Charge In Traffic-Stop Shooting: "Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters announced the grand jury indictment at a news conference to discuss developments in the investigation into the July 19 shooting of motorist Samuel DuBose by Officer Ray Tensing.

Authorities have said Tensing spotted a car driven by DuBose and missing the front license plate, which is required by Ohio law. They say Tensing stopped the car and a struggle ensued after DuBose refused to provide a driver's license and get out of the car.

Tensing, 25, has said he was dragged by the car and forced to shoot at DuBose, 43. He fired once, striking DuBose in the head.

But Deters dismissed Tensing's claim he was dragged and suggested he shouldn't have pulled DuBose over to begin with."
