Mistrial in Child Shooting Trial

A jury was unable to reach a verdict in the trial of a man charged with shooting a 12-year-old Lansing girl as she slept in her bed.

The judge in the case declared a mistrial late Friday afternoon and dismissed the jury.

Keith Morgan was charged with Assault with Intent to Commit Murder. Twelve-year-old Amber Reynolds was shot in the back when a stray bullet came through her bedroom wall during a gunbattle outside her apartment.

The jury could only reach a verdict on one relatively minor charge, Fleeing and Eluding the Police. Prosecutors must now decide if they will try to put Keith Morgan on trial again for Attempted Murder.

Another man, Nicolas Hudson is expected to stand trial on similar charges.

Amber Reynolds survived the shooting. She still has paralysis in her left foot caused by the bullet.
