Updated:HOMESTEAD, Pa. —
A jury deliberated for about an hour Wednesday before finding a man guilty in the shooting death of another man outside a Homestead bar last year.
Wilbert Johnson was found to be guilty of first-degree murder in the Sept. 2013 death of 36-year-old Qaeed Braxton.
Police said Johnson had angry words with his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend inside the Ragtime Saloon, and the two were asked to leave.
Braxton, an innocent bystander, was shot and killed outside.
Police said Johnson claimed he fired a shot after he heard a group of men, including the new boyfriend, threatening to kill him.
