— A Wake County jury convicted a man for a deadly shooting in Garner last summer.

Christopher Barnes will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Investigators say Barnes walked up to Jeff Williams and shot him in the head outside his home on Kentucky Street.

A 16-year-old, who police say drove Barnes to Williams' house, has yet to be tried.
