Around 1 a.m. Tuesday, a state trooper, who was not identified, conducted a traffic stop on U.S. 40 near Ranch View Drive in Vandalia, Lt. Robert Sellers of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a media release. While on the traffic stop, another vehicle not related to the traffic stop, a white Chevrolet Cruze, rammed the trooper’s patrol car.

The trooper gave verbal commands to Dubose as he exited the vehicle and began to walk across a parking lot next to the roadway. 

“The man continued to disregard verbal commands and lunged at the trooper with the knife extended,” Sellers said. “The trooper discharged one round from the service weapon striking the man.” 

Dubose was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Troopers said Dubose was a suspect in a homicide that occurred in Springfield Twp., Hamilton County at 11:58 p.m. Monday.
