BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore jury cleared a man shot by police officers of robbery, assault and reckless endangerment charges, convicting him only of a single gun charge.
Twenty-five-year-old Keith Davis was shot in the face by officers inside a garage last June. Prosecutors said Davis had robbed a hack driver with a gun then run into the garage, where he brandished his weapon at the police officers who chased him there.
But on Thursday, after roughly five hours of deliberations, the jury found Davis not guilty of all charges except being a felon in possession of a handgun.
An expert witness for the state testified that Davis' fingerprints were found on a gun recovered in the garage. However, the hack driver, also a witness for the prosecution, testified that Davis was not the man who robbed him.
