CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A jury in Chattanooga has found a man guilty of a lesser charge in the fatal shooting of his friend.
WRCB-TV reported jurors returned the verdict after about three hours of deliberation on Tuesday. They convicted 21-year-old Myles Stout on charges of reckless homicide and reckless endangerment, turning aside a second-degree murder indictment.
Stout was charged in the March 2011 shooting that killed 18-year-old Myles Compton.
Testimony showed five teens were in a bedroom when one of them showed off two handguns. A .40-caliber weapon discharged, shooting Compton in the chest.
