Shaheim Hassan Lomax, 21, was convicted Thursday evening in the 2010 murder of Spencer Winkfield.
Lomax was found guilty on charges of second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent.
In September 2010, when Winkfield, 20, and friends were hanging out near the intersection of Liberty Street Boulevard and East 45th Street when Lomax approached them in a vehicle.
Lomax then pointed a handgun at the victims and shot several times. Winkfield was struck twice -– once in the foot and once in the back. The victim was immediately transported to the hospital, where he died two days later.
Two months after the murder, Lomax was pulled over in a traffic stop by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. A loaded pistol was located under the seat inside of his vehicle and Lomax was arrested. Upon investigation, the gun in Lomax’s car was analyzed and was found to be the same gun used in the murder of Winkfield.
Witnesses were also able to identify that Lomax was, in fact, the shooter that night.
Lomax faces 25 years minimum mandatory up to life in prison. He will be sentenced the week of July 15.
