Jurors in Oxnard school shooting case speak

VENTURA, Calif.

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
