Joe Deters Ray Tensing Samuel Dubose

Body cam video released

29 Jul, 2015

Prosecutors release a bodycam video of Dubose’s shooting. Prosecutor Deters said the video refutes Tensing’s claim that DuBose pulled away from the stop and dragged Tensing with his car. After the stop the two men talk calmly and politely for about one minute and 50 seconds. Tensing repeatedly asks DuBose to produce a driver’s license. DuBose says he has a license but he doesn’t have it with him, and he apologizes. Tensing then attempts to open the door. It is not clear what happens next, but within a second Tensing shoots Dubose in the head. Deters:

I think he (Tensing) lost his temper because Mr. DuBose would not get out of his car. He wasn’t dragged. When you see it, you will not believe how quickly he pulled his gun and shot him in the head,” Deters said at a 1 p.m. news conference. He was simply, slowly rolling away. That’s it. It was senseless. It didn’t have to happen
