A University of Cincinnati campus police officer who has been charged with murder in the shooting death of an unarmed black man has pleaded not guilty and is out of jail on bail.

Officer Ray Tensing shot and killed 43-year-old Sam DuBose during a routine traffic stop on July 19.

Tensing was fired soon after his indictment on Wednesday, but there are reports now that he is trying to get his job back.

The union representing the University of Cincinnati police force filed a grievance on behalf of Tensing demanding that he be reinstated as an officer, a union official said Friday.

The official claims that the university did not abide by its three-year contract with the union by firing Tensing without due process.
