Joshua Randolph

JACKSON COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -- A Jackson County jury on Friday convicted Joshua Randolph for a fatal shooting that happened in August of 2015.

Joshua Randolph, 37, was convicted of second-degree murder, first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, and three counts of armed criminal action.

According to court records, Kansas City police went to the 3400 block of Park Ave. in Kansas City on a shots-fired call.

When they arrived, they found three victims wounded by gunshots.

One of those victims, Justin J. Butler, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Several spent shell casings were found in the area and a silver driver's-side mirror was found in the street. The mirror matched damage to a vehicle connected to Randolph and a relative.

Surviving victims of the crimes identified Randolph as one of the people shooting into the residence on Park.

Randolph will be sentenced on Dec. 7, 2018.
