University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing was indicted Wednesday on a murder charge for fatally shooting Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop July 19.

Samuel DuBose was stopped for not having a front license plate.

The footage above is from Officer Tensing's body cam.

Things escalate at about the 2:15 mark.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters issued this statement after releasing the body cam video to the public: "It's an absolute tragedy that anyone would behave in this manner. It was senseless. It's just horrible. He purposefully killed him."

Officer Tensing originally said DuBose tried to run him down and he feared he would get "sucked up under the car."
