Jury finds man guilty of fatally shooting 2 people in car

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A man has been convicted of second-degree murder and first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two men in University Place. The News Tribune reports a jury found Alex Lopez Leon guilty Friday in Pierce County Superior Court. Lopez Leon was initially charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the May 2018 deaths of Wilberth Lopez Alcala and Adrian Valencia Cuevas. Lopez Leon and Javier Valenzuela Felix were sitting behind them in a Dodge Charger after leaving a barbecue when Alcala was shot. Cuevas was told to keep driving and then was shot. The motive remains unclear. Valenzuela Felix previously pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
