Attorney General Luther Strange said Thursday a jury convicted 30-year-old Lamar Montrell Williams of manslaughter, attempted murder, first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault.

He was originally charged with murder.

Witnesses said Williams used a handgun to start shooting into a crowd outside of Lee's Country Inn south of Uniontown in the early morning hours of March 20, 2011.

A 29-year-old man, Jonathan Butler of Orville, was killed and four others injured.

A sentencing date has not been set. Williams faces up to life in prison on manslaughter and other charges.

His potential sentence is nhanced because of prior convictions for assault.
