The Chicopee man accused of fatally shooting a teen he said he thought was a burglar is being found not guilty of manslaughter.
Jeffrey Lovell was found not guilty by Hampden Superior Court Judge Constance Sweeney on Tuesday.
Lovell admitted to shooting 15-year-old Dylan Francisco through the front door of his house in July 2016 but testified that he was afraid that whoever was pounding on the door was going to kill him or cause severe injury.
Francisco was reportedly looking for the home of a friend and went to the wrong house.
