A 31-year-old Baltimore man was convicted of attempted murder Wednesday for opening fire on a crowded street while yelling "You think you're better than me," according to the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office.

On June 26, 2010, Andre K. Haines shot eight rounds at his target, Antoine Free, who was standing on Guilford Avenue with family and friends. Free, who identified Haines as the shooter, was hit three times. Bullets grazed two others.

Haines, who was also convicted of two assault counts and handgun offenses, is scheduled for sentencing on May 24; he faces a maximum of life in prison.
