Jury acquits man of murder in Omaha shooting

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A jury has acquitted a man accused in the shooting death of a friend in Omaha.

Jurors said Tuesday that 32-year-old Antoine Johnson was not guilty of second-degree murder. Police say he shot to death 29-year-old Trent Stutheit on Easter Sunday last year.

His attorneys argued that Johnson shot Stutheit in self-defense when they argued after hours of drinking, drug use and horseplay.
