CINCINNATI — A University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot a motorist during a traffic stop has been released on bail after pleading not guilty to murder.

Fired UC officer Ray Tensing appeared in court yesterday, and bail was set at $1 million. The judge became angry when some in the courtroom audience cheered.

Tensing later posted 10 percent of bail and was released.

He’s accused of shooting motorist Samuel DuBose on July 19, after stopping him for not having a front license plate.
