SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Schenectady Grand Jury found 24-year-old Myliek LeBron guilty of 2nd degree murder on Monday.
He was also found guilty of four counts of 2nd degree criminal possession of a weapon.
According to Schenectady District Attorney’s Office, LeBron shot and killed 19-year-old Lasean Gause in front of the Zaid’s Food Market. He was not the intended target, but the DA’s office says was merely an innocent bystander.
“This case once again proves the value of our camera network,” District Attorney Robert Carney said. “While we hope to deter these horrible acts, we will continue to use all means and technology available to us to hold individuals accountable for their crimes.”
LeBron faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in State prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced on August 15.
Two others, Kasheef James and Aaron Ketchmore, are expected to stand trial in connection with the murder of Gause later this year.
The trial began on May 23, 2016 and it took the jury about 2.5 hours to reach their verdict.
