After about 30 hours of deliberation, the jurors could not reach a verdict. This is Tensing’s second mistrial for DuBose’s death.
Earlier this week, a jury acquitted former Milwaukee Police Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown in the shooting death of Sylville Smith. That acquittal came on the heels of a St. Paul, Minnesota jury clearing an officer of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of another Black man, Philando Castile.
