The Court declared a hung jury in St. Bernard Parish last night for the trial of a defendant accused of both attempted second degree murder and armed robbery in the State of Louisiana versus Dalvin Major. The jury was evenly split on the issue of guilt despite the fact the victim identified the defendant as the person who shot him.
