Settlement Reached in Cincinnati Traffic Stop Shooting

The family of an unarmed black motorist shot and killed by a white University of Cincinnati police officer has settled a civil suit and will receive $4.8 million, scholarships for the dead man's 12 children, and an apology from the school.

The shooting was one of several across the United States that have raised questions about police use of force against minorities.

Ray Tensing, the officer who shot Samuel DuBose, was indicted on murder and manslaughter charges in July.

They say Tensing stopped DuBose car for a minor traffic violation and a struggle ensued after DuBose refused to provide a driver's license and get out of the car.

Tensing has said he was dragged by the car and forced to shoot DuBose.

But a video from a camera worn by the officer showed Tensing was never in danger during the July 19 incident.
