CLEVELAND - A Cleveland man was found guilty on Tuesday after a 16-year-old was shot and killed in 2011.
Ramon Torres, 23, of Cleveland was part of a group of men involved in a fight near West 95th Street and Denison Avenue on Sept. 19, 2011. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said the group was threatening the family inside.
Eventually, shots were fired and one hit 16-year-old Jaquan Sims in the head while he was looking through the peep hole.
Torres and his codefendant 23-year-old Pierre Chatman were arrested days later, prosecutors said.
A Cuyahoga County jury found Torres guilty on two counts of murder, nine counts of felonious assault, one count of improperly discharging a firearm and one count of having weapons under a disability. He will be sentence on Thursday and faces a maximum sentenced of life in prison.
In November, Chatmon was found guilty on similar charges and sentenced to 18 years to life in prison.
