Three undercover New York City Police detectives were acquitted of all charges in the 50-shot killing of an unarmed man on his wedding day.

Justice Arthur Cooperman delivered the verdict Friday morning after explaining how he came to the decision.

Michael Oliver, Gescard Isnora and Marc Cooper were cleared in the 2006 killing outside of a strip club.

Two of the officers could have faced up to 25 years in prison. The third was charged only with reckless endangerment and would have faced much less prison time.

The Bell family minister asked for calm in the city and asked people to respect the verdict.
