Man denied new trial in fatal bus stop shooting

Posted: Updated:

A man convicted in a fatal bus stop shooting has been denied a new trial. 

Last June, Tyler Schultz was sentenced to 26 years in prison for the murder of 39-year-old Jeremiah Bates. 

The shooting happened at a bus stop on Santa Fe and Craig Street. 

Police say Schultz fired multiple shots at Bates during an argument.

A few days later, Bates succumbed to his injuries and Schultz's charges were upgraded to murder. 

In July Schultz's attorneys filed a motion for a new trial, claiming they had new evidence to present in the case. 

Judge Sandra Watts came to the conclusion that the new evidence would not change the outcome of the ruling and denied Schultz's request.
