iStock/Thinkstock(CINCINNATI) — Another mistrial was declared Friday for a former Ohio police officer who went on trial twice in connection with a deadly traffic stop shooting two years ago.

Former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing, who is white, fatally shot 43-year-old Sam DuBose, an unarmed black man, after Tensing pulled DuBose’s car over near the University of Cincinnati in July 2015. Tensing’s body camera video shows him shooting DuBose.

Tensing, now 27, lost his job after the shooting and was charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter. A mistrial was declared at his first trial in 2016.
