Not guilty verdict in gun charge

A federal jury acquitted a man of a firearms charge this month.

Zao G. Burrell was arrested in June in Steuben County a couple of days after fleeing from police at a traffic stop. He was able to elude officers in a search that involved police dogs and a plane.

He had been wanted on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

On Sept. 16, after a four-day trial in U.S. District Court in Fort Wayne, Burrell was found not guilty of the single-count indictment.
