Jury Still Out Over Bourke Street Driver's Fitness

A Melbourne jury will enter its fourth day of deliberations about whether murder-accused Bourke Street driver James "Dimitrious" Gargasoulas is mentally fit to stand trial.

The 12 jurors will continue their discussions on Friday as they try to reach a unanimous decision on whether the 28-year-old is fit to face trial.

Gargasoulas is accused of running down pedestrians in the city in January 2017, killing six people, including two children.

He's charged with six counts of murder and 28 of attempted murder.

Four medical experts have given evidence during the Supreme Court investigative hearing but their opinions have been divided.

Two psychiatrists believed Gargasoulas is fit to stand trial but another disagreed.

Justice Lex Lasry has the power to discharge the jury without a verdict if they can't agree.
