CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters is expected to announce his decision on whether to re-try Ray Tensing for the shooting death of Sam DuBose.

The initial trial for murder and voluntary manslaughter ended in a hung jury for both charges and declared a mistrial by Judge Megan Shanahan.

Ray Tensing shot and killed Sam DuBose during a traffic stop near the University of Cincinnati's campus in 2015.

Tensing claimed he feared for his life as he perceived he was being dragged by DuBose's car.

The prosecution used body cam video fro that day to claim the car was not in motion at the time of the shooting.

Cincinnati city council members unanimously passed a resolution urging Deters to retry the former UC police officer for the deadly shooting.

Deters had said he would make a decision on whether to pursue a new trial by November 28.

We will have the press conference live on Local 12, streaming on Local12.com and on the Local 12 Facebook page.
