A South Bend teen accused of murder and attempted murder has been acquitted of all charges.

A jury Thursday determined that 19-year-old Tabias Davis acted in self-defense when he shot and killed 19-year-old Anthony Mobley on April 30th, 2017. The South Bend Tribune reports reckless homicide was also considered by the jury, but that too was brushed aside.

Davis shot and killed Mobley and wounded his brother after the two approached Davis and the girlfriend of Anthony Mobley.

The girlfriend claimed they were just hanging out, but Mobley kicked in the front door to confront Davis. After an argument, Mobley’s brother opened fire on Davis, who responded and hit the shooter in the arm. Mobley was then shot five times in the back.
