WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 28-year-old man who was acquitted of murder in a shooting at Stryker Sports Complex in 2020 has been sentenced to probation on a firearm charge. 

Maurice Hall, of Garland, Texas, was convicted in August of criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Sedgwick County District Judge Tyler Roush on Wednesday sentenced Hall to 18 months of probation with an underlying sentence of 10 months in prison, 75 hours of community service and a curfew from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. each day. The judge authorized his transfer to Texas as long as it's approved by the Texas court system.

Hall was acquitted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 31-year-old Marquell Nolen on October 21, 2020. Police said officers responded that night to Stryker Sports Complex at 2999 North Greenwich and heard multiple gunshots upon arrival.

While officers were on the scene, Nolen arrived at an area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Police alleged that Nolen was at the sports complex and a verbal argument ensued between him and Hall on the west side of the stadium bleachers. Police said that during the argument, Hall pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots at Nolen. 
Hall's attorney claimed the shooting was in self-defense.
