TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa County jury has found a man not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2013 fatal shooting of a locksmith.

Dewayne Marquis Fulsom’s attorney called the case an example of investigators arresting the wrong person based on faulty photo identification. He said after Wednesday’s verdict that he hopes the real shooter in Sebastian Geiger’s death will be prosecuted.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/1Jonl4M ) reports that Geiger and a friend responded to a call to unlock a car at an apartment complex.

Witness Deontee Miller testified that he refused Geiger’s service because Geiger quoted a higher price than he was initially told. Miller says an argument later ensued after Geiger said he would still have to pay a $20 fee for responding.

Miller says a shooter then began firing at Geiger from the direction of the apartment building.
