A Richmond gang member has been convicted of attempted murder for a July 2012 shooting that wounded two people, according to prosecutors.
A Contra Costa County Superior Court jury found 20-year-old Antoine Mims guilty of two counts of attempted murder for the double shooting but acquitted him of a third charge in connection with another shooting that occurred in Richmond later the same day, Deputy District Attorney Satish Jallepalli said.
Each of the victims were treated at hospitals for gunshot wounds and later recovered, he said.
The jury also convicted Mims of enhancements for using a firearm and for being a gang member.
Jallepalli said Mims is affiliated with Central Richmond’s Deep C gang and was on probation in connection with a previous shooting at the time of the attempted murders.
He is set to return to court in Martinez for sentencing on Dec. 12 and is expected to face at least 40 years to life in prison, the prosecutor said.
