ALVIN -- A Texas father has been found not guilty of gunning down the man who killed his sons in a drunk driving accident.

After three hours of deliberations, the jury acquitted David Barajas. He was charged in the shooting death of 20-year-old Jose Banda, Jr. in December 2012.

Barajas' truck stalled along a road near his house.

His sons were pushing the truck when police say Banda crashed into them.

Prosecutors claimed Barajas went home, got a gun, and returned to the crash site to shoot Banda.
