Shortly after 4 p.m. today a jury of eight women and four men decided Johannes Mesherle’s verdict: Guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

The verdict came after only about a day total of deliberation in the murder trial to decide the former BART officer’s fate after he shot Oscar Grant III in the early morning of New Year’s Day 2009.

Oakland Local, The Bay Citizen and our media partners will be on the ground reporting and covering community reactions throughout the night. We’ll be aggregating our social media and multimedia feeds here.
