A man was convicted of attempted first-degree murder Tuesday in the 2012 shooting of a man outside a Frayser convenience store.

According to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich, 26-year-old Jeremy Jones was also convicted of aggravated assault, employing a firearm with intention to commit a felony, and convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

In July of 2012, Jones approached the victim outside a convenience store in the 900 block of Frayser Road. According to the investigation, the two men argued, and as the victim walked away, Jones took out a gun and fired at the victim several times. He then said, "I told you I was going to kill you."

The victim then tried to run away, but he was hit in the arm and the abdomen.

Jones will be sentenced next month. He could face up to 40 years in prison.
