Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said the unreleased footage from a University of Cincinnati officer’s body camera during a fatal shooting last week is “not good.” “The video is not good,” Blackwell told WCPO News. “I think the city manager has said that also publicly. I’ll leave it there.” After meeting with faith leaders early Monday, Blackwell spoke to the local news outlet about the shooting death of 43-year-old Sam Dubose by UC Officer Ray Tensing during a routine traffic stop.
“I don’t want to put my personal feelings out prematurely,” Blackwell said. “I just hope that the right thing continues to be done in this investigation and that we’re able to move forward from this and allow this to be a moment of learning and teaching for our city.”
