PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man has been convicted of attempted homicide and other counts in a shooting outside a Pittsburgh high school in 2013.

Jurors in Allegheny County returned a verdict in the case of 19-year-old Anjohnito Willet late Tuesday afternoon after beginning deliberations the previous morning.

Willet was convicted of one count of attempted homicide but acquitted of two other attempted homicide charges. He was also convicted of multiple counts of aggravated assault and reckless endangering as well as possession of a firearm by a minor.

Authorities alleged that Willet shot three students outside Brashear High School in November 2013, firing from a wooded area as they left school. Police said Willet had been attacked in the school in October but refused to press charges, saying “I’ll handle this myself.”
