BREAKING: A Verdict Has Been Reached in the Oscar Grant-Johannes Mehserle Case
Reports out of Los Angeles say jurors have reached a verdict on the killing of Oscar Grant, an unarmed passenger who was shot by San Francisco-area transit cop Johannes Mehserle, who has since left the force. The verdict is to be announced at 7 p.m. ET.
Jurors had four options: second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter or acquittal, the San Francisco Chronicle writes. The Oakland Tribune reports that the verdict was reached after 6 1/2 hours of deliberations.
