NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A Noblesville man was found not guilty this week in a fatal shooting last year.

Jose Luiz Romo was charged with reckless homicide in the death of 45-year-old Jesus Armando Martinez-Lopez.

On Oct. 30, 2013, officers responded to assist medics on a possible cardiac arrest report on Cicero Road in Noblesville. When they arrived they found Martinez-Lopez lying in the driveway after having been shot in the chest with what appeared to have been a pellet gun.

He was rushed to Riverview Hospital where he later died.

A jury trial began this week for Romo where he was found not guilty in Martinez-Lopez’s death.
