A jury on Thursday convicted a York City teenager of shooting a woman nearly two years ago.
Jovon Javar DeShields, 17, of East Jackson Street, remains in county prison awaiting sentencing on June 20.
DeShields shot Rose Bosley in the abdomen at 1:47 a.m. Aug. 21, 2010, while she was inside her car, the jury determined. He was 15 years old at the time, but was charged as an adult.
Bosley, 53, of Hanover, was treated for her wound at York Hospital and later released, police said.
York City Police said Bosley drove to York City to buy crack-cocaine and parked in the first block of West Maple Street.
'Remember me?' DeShields approached her, pulled a handgun from his waistband, said "remember me?" and started firing, police said.
Bosley's car was struck by several bullets and she was shot once before she was able to drive away.
She told police she didn't know the name of her shooter, but that he had accused her of ripping him off in the past. She later picked DeShields from a photo lineup.
Defense attorney Ron Gross said DeShields maintains Bosley mistakenly identified him as the shooter.
Jurors found him guilty of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, illegal possession of a firearm by a minor and firearms not to be carried without a license.
In 2009, DeShields was adjudicated delinquent as a juvenile for dealing cocaine and committing firearms violations, according to court documents.
