Lucky evidence clears college student in shooting
Julian Butler is back at school studying for his college exams after two days that anyone would call harrowing. Butler was being held as a key suspect in an Easter Day shooting incident in Florida that left five people injured, including a baby in a stroller. In addition to Wal-Mart surveillance footage, Butler's counsel was able to clear him when Butler was able to find his copy of the Wal-Mart receipt. His lawyer says Butler, an ROTC member with a spotless record, was "in shock" during the experience. He was studying for exams when "out of the blue" a friend told him his picture was on the Internet as a potential suspect. Now Butler's back at the University of Central Florida,. His major: Criminal justice.
