MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Prosecutors say a jury has found a Marietta man guilty of shooting at people driving in their cars as an act of gang loyalty.

In a statement, Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds said 27-year-old Johannes Alexander Lopez was convicted Thursday on multiple counts including violation of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, aggravated assault, firearms possession and criminal damage to property in the first degree.

Prosecutors say Lopez, a member of the criminal street gang SUR 13, was involved in two separate shootings of innocent people in 2013. Authorities say he shot at them because their cars were the same color as of one of SUR 13’s rival gangs.

Lopez’s sentencing is Friday. He faces over 300 years in prison.

Lopez was represented by attorney John Greco.
