Coroner releases Samuel DuBose’s preliminary autopsy report

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Hamilton County Coroner has completed a preliminary autopsy for Samuel DuBose, the man who was fatally shot in the head by a University of Cincinnati Police Officer.

The bullet fired by Ray Tensing entered DuBose's left temple and exited the other side of his head, according to Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco's report. The findings are consistent with footage from Tensing's body camera that was released following his murder indictment Wednesday.

The bullet was not recovered.

The shooting happened after Tensing, 25, pulled DuBose over for missing a front license plate.

A toxicology report for DuBose, 43, is still pending. In body camera footage, the officer asks DuBose about a bottle he spotted on the floor of his vehicle and DuBose hands the bottle to him. Officials have not confirmed what was inside.

The coroner did not provide further details on the autopsy.
