Gabriel Chavez was found not guilty Wednesday by a jury in the shooting death of Carlos Marquez, 46, at about 1:40 a.m. Nov. 21, 2014, during an argument outside of Chavez’s home in the 400 block of Duran Place in the Lower Valley.

The jury deliberated for more than three hours before reaching a verdict.

“All our testimony in the trial was that my client was a very peaceful man,” said Chavez’s lawyer, Justin Underwood. “He was a pastor at a church. In the past, the deceased (Marquez) had extorted money by violence and threats to at least two other elderly individuals on the same street.”

He added, “Our ability to develop what happened that night and the history of the violence on part of the deceased showed pretty clearly that it was self-defense.”
