A Pulaski County jury will resume deliberations at 11:30 a.m. today in Judge Wendell Griffen's court to consider the manslaughter case against Josh Hastings, a former Little Rock patrol officer who prosecutors contend acted recklessly in the fatal shooting of Bobby Moore, 15, on a West Little Rock apartment complex parking lot in the early morning hours last August.

Moore and two others had been breaking into cars. Hastings has said he was threatened by the car they were driving and fired on it. The prosecution has argued, supported by expert testimony, that he couldn't have been sure who he was firing at and that he could have easily avoided the car. The car would later prove to be stolen and Moore had an extensive police record.

The all-white jury of nine women and three men deliberated for seven hours Saturday before the judge sent them home for the night.

David Koon will again be on hand.
