Garlens Rogers, 24, was also found guilty on Wednesday of possession, discharge, and great bodily harm.
The shooting happened on March 12, 2022. The victim saw a man loudly arguing with a woman in a car. According to State Attorney’s Office, a witness said one of the victim’s coworkers told the man to leave her alone. The man arguing was later identified by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office as Rogers.
