Family and friends hold vigil for Sam DuBose

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Family and friends of a man killed by a UC police officer gathered at the intersection of Valencia and Rice streets, where he was gunned down.

Sam DuBose was pulled over Sunday for failing to display a front license plate, according to police.

Samuel Vincent Ramone DuBose addressed mourners at his father's vigil before being overcome with emotion and he wasn't alone. "I want to ask them why did they do that for, I want to ask them why did they kill him,” asked DuBose.

Mourners gathered at the site where the incident took place for a person they say was a good man.

"A great person, who a lot of people knew to be very nice. Nobody knew him to be a bad person," said DuBose.

"Know that my son was not a violent person,” said mother Audrey DuBose. "Nobody had the right to put a gun to his head and shot him. What did he do to deserve that?" 

There are still a lot of unanswered questions for family and friends and also from community members.

"We should be protected by the police, not killed by the police,” shouted a bystander.

Though DuBose has a criminal past, people say the man they knew wasn't violent.
