A Monroe County jury has found Dominic Flowers guilty of second degree murder for the shooting just over a year ago that killed a Rochester man who was celebrating his retirement.
The 26-year-old man was convicted of murder, two counts of first degree assault, second degree assault and weapons possession. He and an accomplice started shooting at a crowd of people outside the Renaissance Cafe and Lounge on South Plymouth Avenue, killing 59-year-old Willie Little who had no connection to the intended targets.
Twenty-four-year-old Erica Fleming and 22-year-old Robert Moultrie were hit by gunfire but survived.
Flowers will be sentenced on October 2nd.
