Sam DuBose's brother Aubrey says he will not give up, despite two hung juries and a decision not to try former University of Cincinnati Police officer Ray Tensing a third time in Hamilton County Court.

A coalition of grassroots Miami Valley activist groups is asking the United States Justice Department to continue its investigation into the death of John Crawford III. 

Crawford, a 22-year-old African American, was shot and killed by white Beavercreek Police Officer Sean Williams at a Walmart store on Aug. 5, 2014.

Justice Department officials recently announced they would close the investigation, citing insufficient evidence to pursue civil-rights charges.

The Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office says a grand jury declined to indict three Columbus police officers involved in the shooting death of a murder suspect last year.

After two mistrials, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters says he will not try a former University of Cincinnati police officer a third time.

"Oh my God!" "Why why why why why?" "Keep them back." "Get back, get back, get back."

That's how the audio starts, after two Columbus Police officers shot Kareem Ali Nadir Jones. Taken from the body camera of Samuel James, one of two officers involved, the audio only captures the aftermath of the July 7 shooting.

Columbus Police on Thursday released video of the department’s first officer-involved shooting to be captured by police body cameras.

The U.S. Justice Department says there is insufficient evidence to prove a white Beavercreek Police Officer  violated federal civil rights laws when he shot and killed a black Walmart customer three years ago.

A 30-year old man shot by Columbus Police officers last Friday in Franklinton died Monday morning from his injuries. But the case is raising some questions.

It's rare for a law enforcement officer to be convicted of homicide for shooting someone while on duty. According to a new NPR data analysis, 2,400 people have been killed this way in the last two and a half years; the vast majority of those cases were found to be justified, but NPR found 20 officers who faced charges. Of those, six have been convicted or pleaded guilty.
