A homicide defendant appeared before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry G. Williams to hear the  verdict in his latest trial. However, there was none.

On April 29, alongside his defense attorney, Michael Tomko, Levar Cooper learned his trial had been declared a mistrial due to a hung jury for first-degree murder, firearm use in a felony violent crime, having a handgun on his person, having a handgun in a vehicle and firearm possession with a felony conviction.

This marks Cooper’s third mistrial for the same incident. A jury could not unanimously agree on his guilt or innocence in November 2023 and May 2021

According to previous reports, on May 10, 2021, Baltimore Police Department Officers (BPD) responded to a shots fired call on the 1100 block of Washington Boulevard where they found the victim, Larry Alvin Randall, Jr. suffering from gunshot wounds. Randall was later pronounced dead. Video footage allegedly captured Cooper shooting at Randall multiple times.
