CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A 12th juror has been selected for the trial of a white Charlotte police officer accused of fatally shooting an unarmed black man in search of help.

Local media outlets report the juror was chosen Tuesday for the trial of Randall Kerrick, who is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the September 2013 death of 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell, a former Florida A&M; football player. If convicted, the 28-year-old Kerrick faces up to 11 years in prison.

The 12th juror is a 67-year-old black man who is a military veteran and the only black man selected so far. The jury also includes four white men, three white women, two Latina women and two black women.

Four alternate jurors are still needed to complete jury selection.
