INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A new sentence will be added for the man found guilty for a 2010 shooting during Indiana Black Expo.

Thursday, a jury found Shamus Patton guilty of six counts of forgery for falsifying the signatures on work release documents.

Officials say Patton submitted false signatures from multiple businesses.

Patton was convicted in 2011 when he pleaded guilty to thirteen charges for his role in a downtown shooting during the 2010 Indiana Black Expo.

In August 2011, he was sentenced to 16 years, eight to be served in the Indiana Department of Correction, two to be served in Community Corrections and six suspended.
