An Arapahoe County jury last month acquitted a man charged with murder stemming from a fatal shooting last year in a Walmart parking lot just beyond the city limits.

Daniel Fougner, 55, had been charged with first-degree murder for the shooting of 60-year-old Robert Goldsberry on Oct. 28, 2014.

The jury convicted Fougner of two other charges, felony tampering with evidence and misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon. He is set to be sentenced on those charges next month.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of a Walmart at 1412 Parker Road.

According to the Arapahoe County sheriff’s office, deputies responded to the store on a report of gunfire that night.

There, investigators found Goldsberry with several gunshot wounds and rushed him to an area hospital, where he later died.

Deputies arrested Fougner at the scene and later charged him with first-degree murder, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
