A mistrial was declared Friday in the retrial of former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing, charged with murder in the fatal shooting of unarmed motorist Sam DuBose. It is the second mistrial in the case.

The Hamilton County, OH, jury had deliberated 30 hours over five days after getting the case Monday. They informed the judge Friday they were split evenly, the New York Daily News reports.

Tensing shot the 43-year-old DuBose in the head after pulling him over for a missing front license plate in July of 2015.

The former officer’s first trial also ended in a mistrial.

Both sides agree that Officer Tensing shot DuBose. Tensing, 27, testified he feared he was going to be killed, but prosecutors said repeatedly the evidence contradicted Tensing’s story.
