After 16 Hours Of Deliberation
Jury Came Back With A Guilty Verdict

Chaz Black 2

Victim Chaz Black 16 years old


In March of 2012, Lexington police responded to a “shots fired” call at an apartment complex at Man O’ War and Palumbo drive.  Patrol officers discovered three victims suffering gunshot wounds, including one who did not survive.  Investigation led to the identification of the shooter as Deionta Hayes, 21, who told detectives that he was not present in the apartment during the shooting.

Hayes was arrested and charged with the murder of Chaz Black, who was 16 at the time, as well as assault and theft.  The case proceeded to trial in July of 2015.  The jury heard several days of testimony from people who were in the apartment during the shooting, first responders, investigators, and other witnesses.  Defense attorneys pointed out that there had been another gun in the apartment and argued that Hayes had acted in self-defense.

After approximately 16 hours of deliberation, the jury convicted Hayes of the murder of Chaz Black, assault for shooting the two other victims, and theft of the other gun from the apartment.  The jury next heard several hours of emotional testimony from both sides, including proof that Hayes had been on probation at the time of the shootings.  They deliberated for about three hours and recommended a total sentence of 35 years.

Hayes will be sentenced on August 28, 2015 and remains in custody at the Fayette County Detention Center.
