Jury struggling to reach verdict in ex-cop's case

A federal jury has informed a judge that they are having difficulty reaching a unanimous verdict in the retrial of a former New Orleans police officer charged with fatally shooting a man without justification in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.  

After more than 12 hours of deliberations over two days, jurors told U.S. District Judge Lance Africk in a note Wednesday that they have reached a majority but ``keep going in circles'' and ``tension is getting thick'' as they weigh the case against David Warren.  

Africk instructed the jurors to continue deliberating.  

On Monday, Warren testified that he shot 31-year-old Henry Glover because he thought he saw a gun in his hand. Prosecutors say Glover wasn't armed.  
Warren was convicted of manslaughter in 2010, but an appeals court ordered a new trial.
