GREENSBORO, N.C. — A man who was arrested last November after a shooting at a Greensboro home has been cleared of all charges in connection with the incident.

Police said Essam Bassam Allamadani, 27, was arrested within a couple days of the shooting, which was reported around 12:15 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at 126 Drewsbury Drive.

On Thursday, Chris Parrish with the Guilford County District Attorney’s Office confirmed Allamadani was found not guilty of three counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling following a two-day jury trial last week.

Police had alleged Allamadani was among a group of suspects who broke several windows before firing multiple gunshots at the home, which was occupied by four adults and a 2-year-old girl.

Nobody was injured as a result.

Further details about the incident were not provided.
