Indianapolis man found guilty of murder in Hancock County


GREENFIELD, Ind. (WTHR) - A jury in Hancock County convicted an Indianapolis man of murder for shooting a man during a drug deal.

Damian Coleman was found guilty on all charges Monday, including murder and attempted robbery. Prosecutors say Coleman shot and killed 55-year-old Shannon Kitchens last March after a struggle broke out inside of a car.

His suspected accomplice, Shawn Hammons, took a plea agreement in the case. Coleman will learn his sentence next month.
