High court reverses murder conviction in fatal shooting

  High court reverses murder conviction in fatal shooting ATLANTA — Nine years after a teen allegedly killed a man who stopped to ask for directions, his murder conviction has been tossed because of a faulty search warrant. The Georgia Supreme Court on Monday reversed the conviction of Avery Leon Bryant, who was 17 when prosecutors say he shot Newton Gordon in East Point in 2008.The unanimous opinion says there was enough evidence to convict Bryant. But it says a key search warrant in the case wasn't valid because it didn't state with "particularity" what was to be seized.
