Jurors in Oxnard school shooting case speak
VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) -- Jurors speak out for the first time in the case of the gay Oxnard teenager who was shot and killed by a classmate.
The emotional trial ended in a deadlock September 2 over the possible choices ranging from voluntary manslaughter to first-degree murder.
There was testimony that the defendant, Brandon McInerney, had been taunted by gay classmate Lawrence King.
Jurors spoke to ABC's "20/20" program. They rejected prosecutors' claims that it was a hate crime.
Prosecutors say they intend to re-try the case
