Three men accused of the murder of Patryk Olowniuk have been found not guilty of the killing but two have still been jailed for perverting the course of justice.
Mr Olowniuk, 20, was shot and killed on Leven Walk, Bedford just before 10pm on 27 October last year.
Police arrested the three men and charged them with murder less than a week later.
The BBC reports that at London’s Central Criminal Court, Ryan Davis, 27, and Marcus West, 26, both of Bedford, and Lance Marshalleck, 30, from Rushden, Northamptonshire, were acquitted of the murder.
However, Marshalleck and Davis were found guilty of perverting the course of justice and were jailed for two years.
Davis, from Stanhope Road and Marshalleck from Tyne Way, were also found not guilty of possessing a firearm and assisting an offender.
Mr West, from Sterne Passage, was found not guilty of perverting the course of justice.
Daniel Gray, 27, from Renhold, Bedfordshire was found not guilty of assisting an offender and conspiring to pervert the cause of justice.
Bedfordshire Police told the Bedford Independent: “should any new or compelling evidence come to light in the future, an investigation would be re-opened.”
