CHICAGO (WLS) -- A jury found a Chicago police officer not guilty on Friday in his girlfriend's 2021 shooting death.

After a little over four hours of deliberations, a jury acquitted Pierre Tyler, 29, who had been charged with fatally shooting Andris Wofford, also 29, inside a Galewood home back in December 2021.

Tyler and Wofford, also 29, were dating and had a 9-month-old child together, Cook County prosecutors said. The couple had one prior documented domestic dispute, but charges were never filed in that case, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors said the shooting happened during an argument over Tyler having a second child with another woman.

Tyler was found not guilty of first-degree murder on Friday night.
