Weibel said he was patrolling the East Campus about 6:29 p.m. when he heard Tensing cry out on the radio.
“Tensing began screaming over his radio, ‘Shots fired, shots fired,” Weibel wrote. Weibel said he drove south on Vine to Thill street and located Tensing and Dubose a block away at Rice and Valencia streets.
“Officer Tensing stated he was almost run over by the driver of the Honda Accord and was forced to shoot the driver with his service weapon (Sig Sauer P320). Officer Tensing stated that he fired a single shot,” Weibel wrote. “The vehicle came to a final stop at the corner of Rice Street and Valencia Street. From outside the vehicle I could see a black male motionless with a gunshot wound to his head.”
Cincinnati police soon arrived, pronounced Dubose dead and took over the scene, Weibel wrote.
Dubose’s longtime friend, Nygel Miller, was skeptical of the report, calling it untrue.
“I’m trying to figure out how you can be drug by a vehicle and get your weapon — right it to shoot — at the same time,” Miller said.
State Sen. Cecil Thomas wondered why the UC Police Department didn’t indicate Tensing was dragged from the beginning.
“If there’s nothing to refute that — if the officer’s being truthful and honest — then clearly the video, his body camera, would verify that,” Thomas said.
