    A jury is deciding the fate of a District Heights, Md., police officer on trial for shooting a handcuffed suspect in the back.

    After four days of testimony, closing arguments were presented Thursday in the trial of Sgt. Johnnie Riley on charges of attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and one count of misconduct in office.

    Kalvin Kyle was riding a stolen motorcycle when Riley pulled him over in September 2012. He was handcuffed and placed in the back of a squad car but got out and started to run away. Riley fired, leaving Kyle paralyzed from the waist down.

    The jury did not reach a decision Thursday and will reconvene Tuesday.
