The man, identified as 65-year-old Victor Santana, was found guilty of felonious assault and murder in connection to the death of Javier Harrison and  Devin Henderson, according to the Associated Press.

The incident happened on the night of August 28, 2019, according to the Dayton Daily News, and prosecutors said that Santana snuck up on the teens before shooting them.

The outlet reported that Santana’s attorney, Lucas Wilder, argued that his client saw the group enter through his front gate that night, which prompted him to grab his gun and look for them, adding that he wasn’t sure if they had a weapon.

“In that moment, fear hits him, and he decides to shoot,” Wilder said, according to Dayton Daily News.

As the outlet reported, 19-year-old Ja’shin Gibson, a witness who was with the teens when the shooting occurred, testified that he thought they were inside an abandoned garage. Gibson stated that Santana “didn’t say nothing at all” when he started shooting, the report said.

“I was thinking, ‘thank you, Father, we got justice for our kids,'” Linda Henderson told the outlet.

Dayton Daily News reported that Santana is expected to be sentenced later this month.
