After seven hours of deliberation, the verdict is in for an alleged Evansville gang member. A jury finds Tony Johnson, Jr. not guilty of attempted murder.

Johnson is an alleged member of the Wag Block Gang. Police say the group got into a shootout near Hammerheads back in January, where one man was shot in stomach.

The jury did find Johnson guilty of criminal gang related activity and criminal recklessness, which carries a sentence of up to three years in prison.
