A Baltimore City Circuit Court jury on Thursday convicted a 22-year-old man of second-degree murder in a shooting in Southwest Baltimore that killed a bystander and left two others injured in 2010.

Harry Davis, 22, faces a maximum sentence of 108 years. He was also convicted of two counts of second-degree assault and two weapons violations, the Baltimore City State's Attorney's office said. Sentencing is scheduled for July 2.

Prosecutors said Davis approached four men on the 500 block of Eastlynn Ave. on Sept. 2, 2010 and asked if they would join his gang. When they declined, Davis laughed and said, "I'm gonna rob y'all." He returned hours later with a shotgun and began shooting the men, striking two.

Stray bullets fatally struck a 30-year-old woman, Datea Scott-Smith, who prosecutors said was exiting her home at the time. The two male victims survived.
