An Allegheny County jury on Tuesday convicted a Penn Hills man of fatally shooting a mother and her son nearly two years ago and wounding a third person.

Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Beth Lazarra will sentence Andre Lamar Olive Davis, 22, to a mandatory sentence of life without parole on June 4.

Davis was charged with homicide for the murders of Angela Proctor, 51, and her son, Manning Proctor, 22, on March 13, 2012.

The jury also convicted Davis of attempted homicide and aggravated assault for wounding his longtime friend, Andre Frazier.

Police said Davis opened fire during an argument about money. They believed Frazier was the target and Davis killed the Proctors because they were witnesses.
