NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A jury has adjourned for the night after failing to reach a verdict in the retrial of a former New Orleans police officer charged with shooting a man outside a strip mall without justification.

Prosecutors argued that David Warren shot 31-year-old Henry Glover in the days after Hurricane Katrina because he hated looters and thought he could get away with it in the storm's chaotic aftermath.

Warren testified that he thought Glover had a gun and said he feared for his life.

After the retrial concluded Tuesday, jurors began deliberations that lasted for about six hours. They will reconvene Wednesday morning.
