INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A jury found Harold Bishop guilty of murder Wednesday afternoon.

Bishop killed Khalfani Shabazz in a money dispute in 2012. Prosecutors believe after the murder Bishop went on a crime spree. He allegedly shot a man in some apartments, and then he shot a mother and son while their house was burning to the ground. He is then accused of holding a man at gunpoint outside a Walmart in Columbus. All of these subsequent crimes happened in a matter of days after the deadly shooting.

Deputies in Boone County arrested Bishop after finding him hiding in a wooded area 10 days after the crimes.

Bishop will be sentenced Aug. 12.
