Federal authorities are still reviewing the case of a white University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black motorist in 2015. 

U.S. Attorney's spokesperson Jennifer Thornton confirmed to the Associated Press by email on Friday that the review of "the facts of this matter" continues, but declined comment. U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman said last year the review would determine the potential for prosecution of Ray Tensing for civil rights violations in the slaying of Samuel DuBose. The review began after state murder charges were dropped following two mistrials because of deadlocked juries. Tensing's attorney said Friday he hadn't heard any update on the review. UC on Thursday announced a 344 thousand dollar settlement of a union grievance over Tensing's firing.
