YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A jury has reached a verdict in the trial of one of three men charged in connection with a deadly shooting in Youngstown.

After deliberating three hours on Wednesday and part of Monday morning, a jury in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court found 22-year-old Leonard Savage guilty of complicity to commit aggravated murder, complicity to commit attempted murder and complicity to felonious assault.

Jason Heard, 20, and Jawon Hymes, 25, also face charges in connection with the death of 33-year-old Thomas Owens, who was found shot in the head inside a car on West Myrtle Avenue in November of last year.

Four other people were injured during the shooting.

Heard and Hymes will stand trial later.

No sentencing date has been set for savage.
