A trial for a father-son duo charged with shooting at a Black FedEx driver in Mississippi has ended in a mistrial.

On Thursday (August 17), Judge David Strong, Jr. declared a mistrial in the case involving Brandon Case and his father, Gregory Case, both of whom were charged with attempted murder for shooting at FedEx driver D'Monterrio Gibson, per ABC News.

Gibson previously said he was driving around to deliver a package on January 24 when Gregory attempted to block him from leaving a neighborhood with his truck.

"He tries to cut me off and like instantly, my instincts kicked in. I swerved by him," Gibson told GMA in February.

As he was trying to drive away, Gibson said he spotted Brandon pointing a gun at his delivery van.

"When he got past him, the guy started shooting towards his vehicle. The back of his vehicle was hit several times," Carlos Moore, Gibson's attorney, said at the time. Gibson wasn't injured in the shooting but the delivery vehicle and some packages were left with bullet holes, according to a police report.

Thursday's mistrial came after a police detective shared information that wasn't previously disclosed to the plaintiff's and defendant's legal teams. According to Moore, the defense requested the mistrial.
