BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Jamal "Moo Moo" Hamilton was found not guilty on Friday on all charges related to a shooting spree at Bridgeport's Trumbull Gardens last year, according to the Connecticut Post.

The jury deliberated for just 35 minutes on Friday morning — but that came after failing to come to verdict the previous six days, the Post reported.

Hamilton was accused of ambushing a group of people outside the housing complex on June 11, 2015. The shooting spree left one person dead and another eight injured.

He had been charged with murder and eight counts of first-degree assault in the shooting spree.

In the attack, one or more shooters, ambushed a group of people who had congregated in a parking lot at Trumbull Gardens housing complex.

The suspects approached the area by car and parked on Sunshine Circle, an adjacent street, police said. They entered the housing complex, split up, and simultaneously attacked from several positions, police said.

They sprayed the crowd with gunfire, striking eight of the nine victims, police said.

As the suspects fled, they continued to fire back at the parking lot and in doing so struck an elderly woman who was in her shower on the second floor of her home, police said.

Since the shooting, cameras were installed at Trumbull Gardens.
