Cincinnati Officer Who Fatally Shot Motorist Called ‘Extremely Proactive'

The University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot a man after a traffic stop was described in an annual review this year as being "extremely proactive" with traffic enforcement, NBC News reported.

It wasn’t clear whether the comment was meant positively or negatively, though a supervisor also said the officer, Ray Tensing, "only meets the standards when it comes to community service," according to records released by the university.

On Sunday night, Tensing shot and killed motorist Samuel Dubose, who was unarmed and in his car, allegedly after a brief struggle, according to university and city police.

Tensing had pulled Dubose over for a missing front license plate. Moments later, Dubose, 43, had been shot in the head and was dead at the scene, NBC affiliate WLWT reported.
