KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A Kalamazoo man has been acquitted of a 2019 murder.

Gabreon Wells-Lindsay was found not guilty Thursday morning of open murder and felony firearms, the court clerk confirmed. He was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon.

The charges stemmed from the death of Alex Johnson, 19, who was shot and killed at Hidden Hills Apartments on Nov. 13, 2019.

Police previously said witnesses identified Wells-Lindsey as the killer, saying the pair had a longstanding dispute. Wells-Lindsey was arrested later the same day of the shooting.

Three shots were fired in the shooting that killed Johnson. One hit Johnson. Another hit a second person, who was injured.

Sentencing in the weapons charge is scheduled for Nov. 8.
