Duggan gun trial jury fails to reach verdict
Thursday 18 October 2012
A retrial will be held after a jury failed to reach a verdict in the case of a man accused of supplying a gun to Mark Duggan, whose fatal shooting by police sparked last year's August riots.
Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, was charged with passing the gun to Mr Duggan just 15 minutes before he was shot dead by police marksmen on 4 August last year.
But a jury of seven men and five women at Snaresbrook Crown Court was unable to reach a verdict after nearly 21 hours of deliberations.
Judge David Radford had allowed jurors to reach a majority verdict of 10-2 or 11-1, but he discharged them after they were unable to reach a decision. A re-trial will be held at a date to be set and an administrative hearing will take place on 2 November.
During the trial, which started on 18 September, the prosecution alleged that Mr Duggan, 29, collected the BBM Bruni Model 92 handgun 15 minutes before he was shot dead.
