Drama Among Jurors Deciding Fate Of Del City Police Captain
OKLAHOMA CITY - One of the jurors that was reportedly refusing to cooperate or participate during the deliberation procedure in the manslaughter trial of a Del City police captain was excused by the judge Tuesday.
Randy Harrison is on trial for the shooting death of Dane Scott. Prosecutors say the 18 year old was unarmed when Harrison shot him in the back. The defense says Harrison feared for his life because during a scuffle between the two, Scott kept reaching in his pocket for a gun.
Around 10 p.m., jurors told the judge they were deadlocked. The judge ordered them to continue deliberating; but around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday the jury once again said they couldn't reach a decision. Jurors were sent home for the night, but must return at noon Tuesday to continue deliberating.
News 9 has learned 10 of the 12 jurors are leaning toward a guilty verdict. We're also hearing of a juror who has, for some unknown reason, refused to participate in deliberations.
