FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Henry Underwood was found not guilty for the death of Terrance Miles.

Miles was a football coach who was shot two years ago while taking out the trash.

Miles' family waited two years for this day hoping to find some peace after losing him.

"I have been through ups and downs with this situation," Terrance’s father Lynn Dandridge said.

Miles was killed May 19, 2017, outside East Central Towers Apartments.

Henry Underwood faced charges of murder, felony murder, and attempted robbery.

Jaevin Bowie, was with Underwood that night and testified Wednesday he saw Underwood shoot Miles.

Defense attorneys argued Bowie killed Miles and lied to investigators.

Jurors got a chance to look at surveillance video from that night before the verdict Thursday.

A little while after, Miles' family members were asked to leave the courthouse. However, not for disruption.

"They came to us today right before the jury comes back with the verdict and say we have to leave. We can only have three people in there. That's a bit extreme for a group of people who only want to see justice," Terrance’s brother Darraill Williams said.

Family members wrote guilty in chalk in big blue letters outside of the Allen County Courthouse, along with who Terrance was to them all.

"This man right here on this picture means the world to every one of us standing out here. We're out here for a reason," Terrance’s aunt Shirley Miles said.
