BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A jury decided unanimously on Thursday afternoon that Joseph Gant is guilty of both second-degree murder and attempted murder.
Last August, Gant got involved in a fight on the city's East Side near a footbridge that crosses the 33. He pulled out a gun and fired indiscriminately toward a large group of teenagers and young adults who had been standing around to see the fight.
Gant killed a 14-year-old boy, injured his 13-year-old brother, and injured two other teenagers.
"One of those people was the defendant," said ADA Colleen Curtin Gable. "People who came forward were asked to look at the video of the fight and tell police in the early stages of the investigation if they recognized anyone from it, and several people pointed to the person in the Adidas jacket...and said 'That's the shooter, i don't know who he is, but that's the shooter.'"
