The incident happened back in August of 2018.  Previous reports indicate that Luke Andrew pointed a .22 caliber gun at a teacher and pulled the trigger.

A jury was selected on Wednesday, July 10 and trial began Thursday morning.  Testimony wrapped up the following Monday, with closing arguments on Tuesday.

Jurors were sent to deliberate before 11 a.m.  The were sent home around 4 p.m. without a verdict.
