A Los Angeles County jury found Eric R. Holder Jr. was also found. Convicted of two counts
f attempted voluntary manslaughter for the shooting that hit other men at the scene.
Prosecutors had sought two counts of attempted murder.

whose legal name is Ermias Asgedom, but asked for a lesser verdict of voluntary manslaughter.
