Michael Grevious II had been found guilty of aggravated murder by a jury that deliberated more than eight hours today.
Grevious, 25, of Hamilton, was found guilty of aggravated murder for ordering a retaliation shooting at Central Avenue and Knightsbridge on Aug. 3, 2016 that killed two people.
He will face the death penalty.
On the other charges — having weapons under disability and felonious assault — Grevious was found not guilty. Those charges were related to gun violence that killed his relative during the early morning hours of July 24, 2016 at a Hamilton bar.
Attorneys will be back tomorrow afternoon to begin the sentencing face of the trial when the jury will decide Grevious’ sentence.

“We have more work to do, there is a sentencing phase that starts tomorrw. We are going to go get ready,” said defense attorney David Washington.
