Jurors deadlock in Missouri rap video filming homicide trial

April 12, 2019 - 8:51 AM

ST. LOUIS - Jurors have deadlocked in the trial of a St. Louis man accused of fatally shooting another man during the taping of a rap video.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that jurors couldn't decide whether to convict or acquit 36-year-old Daniel Williams of first-degree murder in the November 2017 killing of Chazz Bridges. But jurors found him guilty of second-degree assault for shooting at another man.

Police say the shooting happened as Bridges was filming the video. Williams testified that he shot Bridges in self-defence after seeing Bridges cock the hammer of a handgun. Williams says he was checking on Bridges when his gun discharged on accident, hitting Bridges again.

He says he also shot at and missed a man holding a video camera because he thought he might be armed.
