WALNUT HILLS (FOX19) -

A jury has reached a verdict in the case of a 17-year-old girl shot and killed outside a Cincinnati YMCA in 2015.

Cincinnati police say Rico Mosley, 20, fired a hail of bullets outside the Melrose YMCA as a "Sweet 16" birthday party ended in April 2015.

Mosley, who was being tried for murder and felonious assault, has been found not guilty of either.

Kelsie Crow, a junior at Purcell Marion High School who played on the soccer team, died in her car while trying to flee the gunfire, police have said. They said she was found in the driver's side of the crashed vehicle, struck in the neck by a stray bullet that lodged in her back.

At least 100 teens were outside the building when nearly 30 shots were fired, according to police. Two other teens, ages 17 and 15, were shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have said Crow was an innocent bystander.

Her family was upset in court Monday afternoon.
