JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 25-year-old man was found guilty Friday afternoon of one count of aggravated assault, one count of improper exhibition of a firearm, one count of possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis and one count of possession of controlled substance paraphernalia, the State Attorney’s Office said.

Kelvyn Carltrell Walker Jr. faces up to 12 years in prison.

In January 2015, Walker was arguing with a woman inside the Kangaroo gas station on 103rd Street on Jacksonville’s Westside. When the victim got into her car to leave, Walker pulled out two guns, pointed them at her and threatened to shoot, Duval County prosecutors said.

She was able to drive away and then notified two Jacksonville sheriff’s officers nearby.

Prosecutors said Walker was pulled over shortly after and police found two guns, cannabis and paraphernalia inside the vehicle.

Walker will be sentenced June 16.
