A Baltimore jury convicted a man of robbing, then killing his mentor in a youth program and shooting another man who survived, the State's Attorney's Office said.
Antomar Jones, 21, was riding home with his mentor Corey Alexander, 31, and Anthony Taylor, 31, when he pulled out a handgun and robbed both men, according to prosecutors. He made them stop the car in the 5700 block of Nasco Place in the city's Loch Raven neighborhood, and Taylor attempted to flee.
Jones shot at Taylor, hitting him in the cheek, but the older man carried on running — hearing a second gunshot as he did so — and made it to Good Samaritan Hospital to get help.

Alexander was later found still sitting in the front passenger seat of the car having been shot in the head. He was taken to the hospital but died of his injuries.
Jones told police that he had been with the men, that he bought drugs from one of them and that Alexander was killed after he left.
Jones, who was convicted on his birthday, is scheduled for sentencing on July 9 and faces life in prison.
