READING, Pa. -

A man accused of being the getaway driver the night of a deadly shooting in Reading has been found not guilty.

Jurors found Cristino Vasquez Ayala not guilty of all charges Thursday afternoon.

Authorities accused Vasquez Ayala of giving Jose Reyes Diaz a ride from the scene of a shooting outside the A-town Cafe on North 10th Street in November 2011.

Reyes Diaz has been sentenced to life in prison for that shooting, which left 21-year-old Ramon Rosario Evangelista dead and two others wounded.
