Posted: Updated:

ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- An Elmira man has been found not guilty of attempted murder in connection with a shooting that happened outside a 7-11 convenience store on Davis Street in April of this year.

Willie Jenkins, 42, was arrested and charged with 2nd degree Attempted murder, among other charges, back in June. 

Police say officers responded to a shooting call at the 7-11 and found Isaiah Green near the front of the store laying on his back. Green suffered a single gunshot wound.

According to police, Green refused to provide any information about the incident. However, a person inside the store told officers they saw Jenkins arguing with a group, including Green. The altercation escalated until the witness says they saw Jenkins turn around and face Green. A single shot was then fires, hitting Green.

Multiple witnesses then saw Jenkins flee the scene.

The weapon was never recovered, but an expended bullet was collected at the scene, as well as Green's clothing.

Jenkins was found guilty of all other charges he faced: assault in the first degree, criminal use of a firearm and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon, in relation to the incident.

He is due back in Chemung County Court for sentencing in January.
