BALTIMORE (AP) - A third mistrial has been declared for a Baltimore man accused of shooting an off-duty police officer.

The Baltimore Sun reports (https://bsun.md/1Pj35rJ) a hung jury was declared Tuesday in the third attempt to convict 36-year-old Gregg Thomas of shooting Sgt. Keith Mcneill.

Thomas was charged with attempted first-degree murder in the March 2014 attack on Mcneill. He was hospitalized for more than a year after the incident.

Thomas’ first trial in September 2015 ended in mistrial after a judge ruled that police failed to turn over certain pieces of evidence to the defense.

He was tried again in February, but the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict.

Rochelle Ritchie, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore state’s attorney’s office, didn’t say whether the office plans to retry Thomas.
