VIKCBSURG, Miss. (AP) - A paralyzed Vicksburg man has been convicted of his role in a 2011 drive-by shooting.
The Vicksburg Post reports that Eric Wallace faces up to 45 years in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 14.
A Warren County jury found the 31-year-old Wallace guilty Wednesday of drive-by shooting, shooting into a motor vehicle and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
Wallace was paralyzed following a drive-by shooting in 2006.
Prosecutors say forensic tests showed bullet casings found at the scene Wallace's pistol.
No one was injured in the shooting.
Wallace claimed he was at a lounge when the shooting occurred.
Defense attorneys say the markings on the shell casings were not enough to convict Wallace. They say there was no eyewitness to place Wallace at the scene.
