Jury reaches guilty verdict in ambulance shooting trial

Dontay Martin, 23, was found guilty on all nine counts


ALLEN CO., Ind. — It took an Allen County jury less than an hour to reach a guilty verdict in the trial of a man accused of shooting up an ambulance and another vehicle back in September of 2012.

Dontay Martin, 23, was found guilty on all nine counts.  As the verdict was being read, friends and members of his family became emotional. The jury began deliberations just after 3 p.m. on Wednesday after the defense had wrapped up its case earlier in the day.

Martin was charged with firing several shots into an ambulance that was transporting a stabbing victim from a fight that had broken out at a Fort Wayne nightclub. Shots were also fired into a car with family members of the stabbing victim that was following the ambulance to a hospital. Martin has sat attentively and for the most part expressionless during the trial while taking notes on occasion.
