ATLANTA (AP) _ Jurors in an Atlanta-area community say they are deadlocked on some of the charges against a former police officer who fatally shot an unarmed, naked black man.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports jurors in DeKalb County sent the judge a note Monday saying they have decided some charges but deadlocked on others.

Superior Court Judge LaTisha Dear Jackson instructed jurors to continue keep deliberating Tuesday.

Robert ``Chip'' Olsen is charged with felony murder, aggravated assault, violation of oath of office and making a false statement in the 2015 death of 26-year-old Anthony Hill. Hill was an Air Force veteran who had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and PTSD.

Olsen was responding to a report of a naked man behaving erratically outside an Atlanta-area apartment complex when he shot Hill.
