OMAHA, Neb. (AP)  A 22-year-old Omaha man has been found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2014 shooting deaths of two other men.

A jury also found Harold Baker guilty Thursday of two counts of attempted murder and four weapons counts. Prosecutors say Baker used an assault rifle to fire some 30 shots at a car carrying four people on Dec. 21, 2014. The gunfire killed 27-year-old Derek Johnson and 28-year-old Jermaine Richey and injured the two other men. The shooting was captured on security cameras in the north Omaha neighborhood.

Baker faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
