NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – One man linked to the death of a Newport News nightclub owner back in February was found not guilty.

25-year-old Brandon Morris was acquitted of second degree murder Wednesday. Police said Morris drove the getaway car the night Issac Oshin was killed at the Majik City II Gentlemen’s Club on Jefferson Avenue.  Investigators say 20-year-old Rashad Ashlock shot Oshin.

Police say Ashlock and Oshin got into an argument, then Ashlock came back later that night, and killed him. Ashlock’s trial is scheduled to begin in September.
