Ladavius Trisvan was found guilty on three counts of malicious wounding and on three counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Dispatchers received a call about the shooting in the 1800 block of Atlantic Avenue at the oceanfront just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday, July 5, 2018.

Patrol officers were within a block of the shooting scene when the incident happened. Officers arrived at the scene to find two women and four men suffering from non-life threatening injuries.

Trisvan, who is from Emporia, had surveillance video played during his trial, which prosecutors argued shows that he raised his arm followed by a muzzle flash.
