OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been found not guilty of first-degree murder in a 2013 fatal shooting.

A jury in Douglas County District Court returned the verdict Friday in the trial of 24-year-old Anthony Floyd.

Floyd was accused of shooting 31-year-old Rodney Hunt in October 2013 near a motel. Hunt was shot in the head.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1AP7TJ1 ) Floyd was also found not guilty of use of a firearm to commit a felony and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

In April, while awaiting trial, Floyd had his testicles partially detached during a fight with another inmate. He underwent surgery to reattach them.
