FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - An Allen County Jury couldn't decide to find a 2016 fatal shooting suspect guilty on murder charges Thursday evening.

Devyn Yancey had faced murder, felony murder and a robbery charge in the shooting death of Brian Quintana back in August 2016.

The jury found him not guilty of the robbery charge.

If the prosecutor chooses to do so, Yancey could be retried on the murder charge.

Police said shots were fired in the 1900 block of River Run Trail, and when officers arrived, they found Brian Quintana laying the parking lot, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Quintana was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say he was shot during a robbery involving drugs.
