A jury acquitted Terrance Roberts after less than two days of deliberations. Roberts was charged with first-degree attempted murder and first degree assault. Roberts shot Hasan Jones outside a Boys and Girls Club in 2013. Jones survived. 

Roberts argued the shooting was in self-defense, and that he feared for his safety after members of his former gang, the Bloods, accused him of being a snitch. Roberts left the gang some 10 years ago.

Since then he’s worked as an organizer and activist in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood.
