SAN BERNARDINO — A jury found two young men guilty Wednesday in the beating death of 63-year-old Nathan Macon during a fight at a San Bernardino convenience store.
Jurors found Milton Walker, and his brother, Jerome Walker, guilty of second-degree murder in the killing of Macon last year at Jimmy’s Food Store, near Base Line and Medical Center Drive.

Family members of the victim cried and hugged eachother upon hearing the verdicts. Continue reading →

A man recently convicted in the shooting death of 20-year-old Edward Griffin is scheduled to be sentenced Monday in San Bernardino Superior Court.
Defendant Patrick Shaun Macon, 28, was convicted by a jury of manslaughter and attempted manslaughter on Sept. 8 in Griffin’s death and faces about 30 years in state prison, according to prosecutors.

SAN BERNARDINO – After hearing weeks of testimony, a jury aquitted one man and deadlocked on the charges against another Monday in the trial stemming from the 2007 deadly shooting of 20-year-old Edward Griffin on the city’s Westside.
A third man, Patrick Shaun Macon, was found guilty of lesser charges — voluntary manslaughter and attempted voluntary manslaughter — and a street gang allegation was found not true, during proceedings in San Bernardino Superior Court.
The jury found Marsean Lamont Macon, Patrick’s brother, not guilty of murder and attempted murder charges as well as all special allegations.
Jurors will begin deliberating Monday morning after having reached verdicts on two of the three defendants on trial for the shooting death of 20-year-old Edward Griffin.
Lawyers in the case of Patrick Shaun Macon, Marsean Lamont Macon and Norris Anthony Crawford were alerted Friday that the jury had reached verdicts for two of the men but were unable to do so for the third in San Bernardino Superior Court, according to court records.
Judge Ronald Christianson gave a written reponse to the jury, ordered the two verdicts sealed and recessed the jury for the weekend. The jury was ordered to return to court at 10 a.m. Monday.
