TULSA, Oklahoma -- A Tulsa jury has convicted a suspect in the shooting death of an innocent man two years ago.

Jurors convicted Amos Adetula in the shooting death of Norris Walton.

Norris Walton was in a wheelchair and just getting off a city bus when he was caught in some crossfire. Prosecutors say Amos Adetula and another man started shooting after confronting another man over drugs.

Jurors convicted Adetula and recommended 25 years for the murder and an additional 10 years for shooting with intent to kill.

The other suspect, Derek Thomas, is set to go to trial in June.
