Officer found guilty in unarmed boy's death

Houston police officer who fatally shot an unarmed 14-year-old boy was found guilty today of criminally negligent homicide with a deadly weapon.

The verdict against 25-year-old Arthur J. Carbonneau was the least harsh of three decisions jurors could have made in the case involving the shooting of Eli Eloy Escobar II in the head at close range during a scuffle at a northwest Houston apartment.
