A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of Christian Bey, the man accused of shooting and killing an off-duty Pittsburgh Police officer in 2019.

The Post-Gazette reports Bey's defense team requested the mistrial after a witness for the prosecution mentioned she met Bey when he moved in across the street after he was released from prison.

Bey was on trial for homicide after allegedly killing Calvin Hall during a block party in Homewood.

Officer Hall was visiting family in Homewood when he reportedly broke up a confrontation across the street from where he was at.

As he walked away from the argument, he was shot three times in the back.

He was shot on July 14, 2019.

Officer Hall died three days later
