ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — An Olmsted County jury will resume deliberations in the retrial of a Rochester man accused of fatally shooting a 17-year-old boy in a confrontation over a traffic accident.
Alexander Weiss is being retried for second-degree murder in the death of Muhammed Rahim on Jan. 14, 2018. Weiss claimed self-defense, saying Rahim confronted him following the collision.
A jury could not reach a verdict in the first trial last May and a judge declared a mistrial.
KTTC-TV reports the jury deliberated about eight hours Tuesday and requested another look at bodycam video from one of the first officers on scene that day, as well surveillance video from a nearby apartment building.
