A man who shot five people inside a Walmart nearly Philadelphia last year has been convicted of attempted murder.
A Montgomery County jury also found 31-year-old Keenan Jones guilty Monday of resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and firearm offenses.
Jones' lawyer argued her client had a "psychotic break." But the prosecution said evidence showed Jones knew what he was doing. A jury deliberated for about an hour.
Jones was in a checkout line in August 2018 when he pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and fired at a man a few feet away.
Authorities say he then ran through the front of the store, firing randomly. All the shooting victims survived.
