INDIANAPOLIS – A judge ordered a man released from custody after jurors found him not guilty in connection with a deadly 2022 shooting on the near east side.

The jury acquitted 21-year-old David Villanueva on one count of murder and two counts of pointing a firearm in the April 25, 2022, shooting that killed 19-year-old Tyvon Moore.

According to investigators, the shooting happened around 5:30 a.m. on North Gray Street. Officers found Moore suffering from a gunshot wound; he later died at a hospital.
