NASHVILLE, Tenn.— The first Nashville police officer ever charged with murder in an on-duty shooting reached an unexpected deal with prosecutors on Friday – mere days before he was set to go to trial.

Andrew Delke, who resigned from the force Thursday, will serve three years on a charge of voluntary manslaughter in the fatal 2018 shooting of Daniel Hambrick. He pleaded guilty during a tense and emotional hearing that erupted in outbursts from the victim's mother and family.

The plea deal enraged Hambrick's family: His mother, Vickie Hambrick, addressed the court and exploded in anger at Delke, screaming: "I hate you."

Her emotional, expletive-laden outbursts continued for minutes. She tried to knock over the prosecution's table and toppled a lectern.

Delke was removed from the courtroom as was Judge Monte Watkins, and Vickie Hambrick was escorted from the room by supporters and other family members.
