Jury Reaches Split Verdict In Security Guard’s Killing

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A spilt verdict has been reached in the case of a man accused in the hit and run killing of a security guard at a Sacramento nightclub back in 2009.

The jury found 24-year-old Michael Weisz not guilty of second-degree murder but guilty for hit and run in the death of 64-year-old security guard Leroy Fisher outside The Depot/Badlands Dance Club on 20th and K Street on September 23, 2009. 

Police had said that Weisz ran over Fisher after he and a friend were kicked out of the bar earlier in the night.

Fisher, known as ‘Pops’, worked at the club for 10 years.

Weisz will remain in custody because he was picked up for DUI while out on bail for the murder charges.
