 The verdict is in on a man accused of shooting another man in the face, stealing his car, and leading police on a high speed chase. 26 year-old Justin Brewer was found not guilty of attempted murder, robbery, burglary, and criminal confinement. Prosecutors say his argument was self-defense.
Brewer was found guilty of auto theft.
He is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
This is the same Justin Brewer who pleaded guilty to an Evansville bank robbery in 2010.
