No Verdict Reached Yet In Baby's Shooting Case 6-14-2010

There is still no verdict in the case against a Saginaw teenager, charged with shooting an infant last year.
As of Tuesday morning, the Saginaw County jury of nine women and three men remained deadlocked and unable to agree on a verdict.
Jordan Granderson, 16, has been charged as an adult with four counts of assault with intent to murder in connection to the September shooting on Saginaw’s east side.
A 6-month-old baby and two others were hit by bullets while driving on Walnut between South 10th and 11th.
During the trial witnesses testified that it was Granderson who opened fire on the vehicle the victims were sitting in. They said Granderson began firing at the car because “it was on his turf.”
Everyone in the car survived the shooting.
On Monday, the jury told Saginaw District Judge Fred Borchard that they could not come up with a unanimous verdict and were deadlocked on all four counts.
In a jury case, to get a verdict, all 12 jurors must agree either guilty or not guilty.
“I’m going to ask you to please return to the jury room and resume your deliberations in the hope that after further discussions you will be able to reach a verdict,” Borchard told the jurors Monday.
If the jury cannot reach a verdict, Borchard will declare a mistrial.
Jury deliberations began on Friday.
WNEM TV5’s Brian Wood has been covering the trial and will have the latest developments coming up on TV5 News at 5 p.m.
