A judge declared a mistrial for a Duncan man accused of shooting at Greenville police officers and leading them on a daylong manhunt after the jury could not reach a verdict on Thursday.
The jury found Patrick Lowrance, 26, guilty of possession of a stolen car but they were hung on the charges of failure to stop for a blue light, attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Solicitor Walt Wilkins said they will retry the case as soon as possible on those three charges, likely within in the next six months.
Lowrance had been in jail since he was arrested in October 2011. He had been held on multiple charges after police said he led them on a chase in a stolen vehicle, then fired shots at two police officers before fleeing again.
He was injured in the alleged shootout and later arrested the same day.
Lowrance testified on Wednesday that he was not the one who shot at police. He admitted to being there but said two other men were the ones responsible.
