CINCINNATI -- A crime scene investigator identified evidence collected at the scene where Sam DuBose was shot during Day 4 of the Ray Tensing trial Friday. 

Jimmy Nghia Duc Pham, crime scene investigator for Cincinnati Police Department, presented the evidence he photographed and gathered. 

The following was recovered from the scene, according to Pham: 

  • A gin bottle filled with perfume was found in the street.

  • The red hat DuBose was wearing when he was shot was found in the backseat of his vehicle.
