Aaron Wallace
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

An 18-year-old Jacksonville man was convicted this week on two counts of attempted aggravated battery and one count of possession of a firearm by a juvenile found to have committed a felony act.

In March, two female victims, one of whom has a child with Aaron Wallace, went to his home to retrieve a Wii gaming system. After a brief verbal disagreement, the two girls left in their vehicle.

As they drove away from Wallace's home, he pulled out a gun and fired two shots at the vehicle. The victims were not hurt in the shooting.

Wallace faces a 20-year minimum-mandatory sentence for each of the two counts of attempted aggravated battery. Wallace was on probation at the time of the shooting for a prior felony battery charge. He now faces additional time for violating his probation.

Wallace will be sentenced the week of Feb. 24.
