FLINT, MI -- A Flint man has been found not guilty of fatally shooting 18-year-old Shamika Johnson outside her sister's home on the city's north side in 2012.

Lee Edward Vaughn was found not guilty Monday, Oct. 26, by jurors following a roughly week-long trial in front of Genesee Circuit Judge Judith Fullerton.

"The jury spent a lot of time going over the evidence," said Vaughn's attorney, Barry Wolf. "They believed the prosecutor could not prove (Vaughn) was the murderer."
