(NBC) - A Texas father was found not guilty of gunning down the man who killed his young sons in a drunk driving accident.

After three hours of deliberations, the jury acquitted David Barajas, who was charged in the shooting death of 20-year-old Jose Banda, Jr. in December 2012.

An intoxicated Banda struck Barajas and his two children while they pushed their disabled truck down a county road after it ran out of gas.

Authorities alleged that Barajas went home, retrieved a gun and returned to the crash site to shoot Banda in the head.
