Deliberations entering third day in Ohio cop shooting case




CINCINNATI (AP) — Jury deliberations will stretch into a third day in the murder trial of a white former police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man during a traffic stop last year near the University of Cincinnati.

Hamilton County Judge Megan Shanahan sequestered the jury of 10 whites and two blacks for a second night Thursday and told them to resume deliberating Friday morning.

The judge says jurors requested to review testimony by experts on police use of deadly force. Twenty-six-year-old Ray Tensing has said he feared for his life when 43-year-old Sam DuBose tried to drive away.

Authorities, downtown businesses and schools have been monitoring developments closely. Some businesses released employees early Thursday and at least two schools closed in anticipation of a verdict that could bring strong reactions.
