BALTIMORE - A Baltimore man was found guilty of murdering a 17-year-old and shooting two others in 2021 in Southeast Baltimore.

Lenny Epps, 43, was convicted on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and three counts of use of a handgun in the Commission of a Crime of Violence.

He faces two Life sentences plus 100 years with the first 20 years ineligible for parole for the triple shooting.
