BALTIMORE (AP) - Prosecutors say four men will be retried in the shooting death of a 16-month-old boy after their first trial ended in a hung jury.

The Baltimore Sun ( ) reports a lone holdout on the jury at Baltimore Circuit Court Friday blocked the convictions of 23-year-old Eddie Tarver, 27-year-old Reginald Love, 24-year-old Rashid Mayo and 22-year-old Dequan Shields for the death of Carter Scott in 2013. Jurors must vote unanimously for a conviction.

Prosecutors say Scott was in the backseat of his father’s car when multiple shooters fired at the vehicle at least 16 times in 2013. The child was shot in the legs and bled to death. The father was hit several times, but survived.

Last week, 28-year-old Cornell Harvey was found guilty of murder charges in the Scott case.
