Cincinnati demonstrators rally for motorist slain by policeman

Officer charged as body cam video shows traffic stop shooting 03:05

CINCINNATI -- A rally for a black motorist shot and killed by a white University of Cincinnati police officer during a traffic stop has drawn a large crowd outside a courthouse.

Wednesday's rally was held by the activist group Black Lives Matter. It followed the indictment of Officer Ray Tensing on a murder charge in the death of driver Samuel DuBose. Tensing had stopped DuBose over a missing front license plate.

Tensing turned himself in Wednesday at the Hamilton County Justice Center and was processed on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter. He's scheduled to be in court Thursday morning.

The rally appeared peaceful. Some people held up signs calling for justice for DuBose. One man on a bullhorn stressed they were "not going to riot."
