A Schuylkill County jury on Tuesday found a Tamaqua man not guilty of aggravated assault in the April 12, 2014, shooting of another man.
John E. Clause, 60, had initially been charged with attempted criminal homicide, aggravated and simple assault and reckless endangerment.
The attempted homicide charge was dropped.
According to court documents, Clause went to the Walker Township home of Mark Scheitrum, 27, of 114 Reynolds Road, at 7:50 p.m. that day.
The two argued, and Clause went into the house to find Scheitrum in the bathroom.
