A Criminal Court jury on Friday found Lonta Burress Jr. and Darius Gustus guilty as charged in a Dec. 7, 2010, school bus stop shooting.
The multiple convictions came despite the fact that one witness changed his story and another who was in a stolen truck with the pair at the time of the shooting said she "could not recall" what happened.
They were charged with firing multiple shots at high school students who had just gotten off a school bus.
Burress is awaiting trial for the murder of Darius Townsend, which happened six months after the school bus stop gunfire while Burress was out on bond.
Both received three aggravated assault convictions, which carry 3-6 years in prison. Prosecutor Bret Alexander said those could be run consecutive to one another and to other convictions, including evading arrest for both, possession of a handgun in the commission of a crime, theft over $1,000 for Burress, evading arrest in a vehicle for Burress and reckless endangerment for Gustus, who fired the shots.
Sentencing by Judge Don Poole is Aug. 28.
Prosecutor Alexander, who handled the case along with Cameron Williams, praised the efforts of the Crime Suppression Unit and the jury, saying they considered all the evidence.
Lawana Woods first would not come to court, then she said on the witness stand she had memory problems. Prosecutor Alexander went through her transcript from a Juvenile Court transfer proceeding before the jury.
She had said earlier that she was with the pair in a stolen red pickup truck and that they had gotten behind the bus and that shots were fired "toward a boy."
JaMichael Ewbanks, 17, told the jury Wednesday that the shots rang out after he and two others - Frederick Jones Jr. and Lamarvin Simmons - got off the bus. He said there were more than five shots fired, and he said he was scared and ran home. He said he did see a red truck in the vicinity. He said he knew of no beef that Burress had with Jones.
Josh May of the police crime suppression unit said at the time Ewbanks told him that he saw "D Man" (Burress) in the truck. He said Burress and Jones had been in conflict over a female.
No one was hit by any of the shots.
The pair rolled the truck several times on Willow Street after trying to elude officers. Video of the frightening wreck was shown to jurors.
Burress was one of three young people charged in a shooting at Coolidge Park in 2010..
