A jury has delivered a guilty verdict to the Cincinnati man who was accused of shooting the friend of Grammy Award-winning rapper T.I.
Hosea Thomas, 34, was on trial for shooting Johnson as he fired into T.I.’s entourage following a May 2006 concert in Cincinnati. During testimony last week, T.I. told jurors he believed the bullets were meant for him.
In addition to murder, Thomas was also convicted of felonious assault and illegally having a gun after a felony conviction.
He faces up to life in prison at his sentencing on Dec. 23.
