Guilty verdict in Winona bar shooting

Posted:
WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) -

The Winona man accused of shooting and killing another man over a parking dispute back in July 2016 is found guilty Tuesday of killing 53-year-old Bob Johnson.

It took about five hours for jurors to find 51-year-old Ricky Waiters guilty of "Murder in the First Degree- drive-by shooting."

He is also guilty on eight other counts related to the case.

Witnesses say before the shooting Waiters parked in a no parking zone outside EB's Bar.

That's when another man approached him to tell him he wasn't supposed to park there.

Waiters then fired several shots into the crowd outside the bar.

Johnson died at the scene.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 5th.
