San Diego

Jurors in the retrial of Sagon Penn ended their 18th day of deliberations Wednesday without reaching a verdict. Two jurors’ illnesses had canceled deliberations Monday and Tuesday.

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.
