The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that jurors convicted 23-year-old Steven Bennett Jr. on Friday in the death of 24-year-old Cherinoh Kabba but deadlocked on the charge in 22-year-old Juvannie Mitchell's death.
Prosecutors said Bennett's father argued with Kabba in Elmwood in May 2018 and pursued him when he left. They say his son then tried to break up their fight when Mitchell punched him, and he then drew his gun and fired.
Prosecutors said both men killed were unarmed and were shot in the back. Defense attorney Gary Server said Kabba had threatened to shoot the Bennetts.
