Two York men have been found guilty of the September 2015 homicide of a Lebanon County bouncer.

Richard Kinnard II, 26, and Jared Jones, also 26, were found guilty of homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, aggravated assault, conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and flight to avoid apprehension, according to online court records. Kinnard also was found guilty of discharging a firearm into an occupied structure and recklessly endangering another person, records state.

Richard Kinnard II

Background:  Police have said 31-year-old Bryan Corey was working security at Vinny's Good Times Bar in Lebanon on Saturday, Sept. 19, when he threw out Kinnard after a "disturbance" right around the bar's 2 a.m. closing time.

Authorities say Kinnard walked to his vehicle, returned to the entrance of the bar with a handgun and fired several rounds into the building, striking Corey multiple times in the abdomen. Corey later died at a local hospital.

A 37-year-old Lebanon woman was grazed in the hip by a bullet and was treated at a local hospital, police said.

The men fled in Kinnard's 2007 BMW, with Jones driving, according to police.

The car crashed on East Kercher Avenue a short time later, police said. There was no one inside or near it when officers found the vehicle, but a search of the car yielded the handgun, police said.

Kinnard was arrested in Tucson, Arizona, in January 2016, according to officials.

Jones was arrested two days later in a hotel in Hershey, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service. They arrested him without incident but did find two .22-caliber handguns that he had with him, that release said.
