A Santa Fe man accused in a 2010 murder has been acquitted.
Russell Harris was arrested for the murder of 24-year-old Julian Cordova.
Police said the incident stemmed from a fight between Harris and Cordova's younger brother.
Harris testified he shot Cordova because he threatened him with a gun.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports prosecutors argued Cordova never had a gun on him.
A jury found Harris not guilty Thursday stating the shooting was in self-defense.
