San Diego

Jurors in the retrial of Sagon Penn ended their third day of deliberations Friday without reaching a verdict.

Penn, 25, faces five felony counts in the shooting death more than two years ago of San Diego Police Agent Thomas Riggs and the wounding of Agent Donovan Jacobs and civilian ride-along Sarah Pina Ruiz.

The defense claims Penn, a black, was firing to defend himself from a racially motivated attack.
