Man Acquitted In Deadly Shooting At Sports Complex In Wichita

WICHITA, KANSAS — A man was found not guilty in a deadly shooting at the Stryker Sports Complex in Wichita Kansas, earlier this month.

Maurice Hall was charged with first degree murder in the 2020 shooting death of 31-year-old Marquell Nolan. Police say the two men were arguing at the complex behind the bleachers during a youth football game. At some point, tensions escalated and a handgun was pulled out and discharged. This resulted in the shooting death of Marquell Nolan.

An affidavit from the local district attorney explained that identifying clothing worn by Hall, A bright yellow jumpsuit, along with a cup he had dropped at the scene left evidence that led to his arrest in connection with the shooting.

During the trial, the defense raised self-defense in the case.

Ultimately a jury acquitted Hall of murder based on the claim of self-defense but convicted him of criminal possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
