NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — A man has been found not guilty in the fatal shooting of another man in Newport News back in 2020.

On Oct. 27, a jury found Cortez Dayshawn Bumphus not guilty in the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Joel Anthony Davis Jr.

Newport News Police say Davis was found shot late October 2020 in the 300 block of 73rd Street.
