KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

A Kansas City man has been convicted of fatally shooting two people in August 2012.

Jackson County jurors Friday found 51-year-old Oliver L. Todd guilty of two counts of second-degree murder. Court records say the killings happened after Todd argued with several people on the front porch of home at Linwood Boulevard and College Avenue. He then returned with a gun, killing 24-year-old Travis Pernell and 29-year-old Melvin Taylor.

The jury also found Todd guilty of one count of first degree assault and three counts of armed criminal action. Sentencing is set for Nov. 24 at 10 a.m.
