ODESSA - Two days ago, everyone thought they were going to hear the fate of an Odessa man accused of shooting at someone.

Well they thought wrong.

47-year-old Dion Harley is on trial for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The jury started deliberations at about 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon and were sent back four times by a judge to try and come up with a unanimous decision.

By the time 9:15 p.m. rolled around, still nothing.

That means only one thing, a mistrial.

The case is now back in the hands of the District Attorney's Office where prosecutors must decide what to do next.

The case could be re-tried by a different jury.

Harley is accused of shooting at Jennifer Wallace back in May of 2010.
