CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A Mecklenburg County Jury found a Charlotte man not guilty in the death of a 21-year-old man.

Monte Gay, 21, was found with a gunshot wound at the intersection of Farm Pond Lane and Albemarle Road in January 2013. He was pronounced deceased upon his arrival at CMC Main.

Samuels was found not guilty of first-degree murder by a jury in Gay's death on Wednesday.
