A jury Wednesday acquitted former New Orleans police officer David Warren of federal civil rights and gun charges stemming from the post-Hurricane Katrina killing of Henry Glover. After 14 hours of deliberations, the jury delivered its verdict at 5:15 p.m.

Just an hour before, jurors reported they were deadlocked in a note that said the "tension is getting thick."

Warren testified that he he feared for his life when he shot Glover on Sept. 2005 from the second-story balcony of an Algiers strip mall where Warren was standing guard.

The former lawman, who fired a single round from his personal assault rifle, said he saw something in Glover's hand that could have been a gun. And Warren said that Glover, after arriving in a stolen truck with another man, was charging toward a first-floor gate, which Warren believed was unlocked.

After the verdict was read, members of the Glover family sobbed, and Patrice Glover, a sister of Glover, screamed before a man hoisted her in his arms and carried her into the hallway. In the hall, she continued wailing and said, "He killed my brother."
