Mistrial in Uniontown shooting case

Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, 12:01 a.m.
 

A Fayette County jury deliberated for several hours Thursday night and most of the day Friday before a shooting case was declared a mistrial.

According to the District Attorney's Office, the case of Calvin Jay Huffman ended in a hung jury before Judge John R. Wagner Jr.

Huffman, 26, of Uniontown was being tried on two counts of aggravated assault, three counts of simple assault and two counts of reckless endangerment.

Two charges of attempted homicide and several related charges were dismissed during trial.

Testimony over the last two days included that of two victims who said they were shot outside the Splash bar in Uniontown on April 24, 2011.

At least one victim testified that Huffman was not the person who shot him in a forearm and buttocks.

Both victims were treated at hospitals and released.

Huffman remains jailed on $500,000 bail.

This week's proceedings marked the second time a jury has been seated in the case. A mistrial was declared by Judge Ralph Warman in June when a juror met behind closed doors with the judge and both attorneys.
