BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The Baltimore City Circuit Court has convicted Antonio Moore of first-degree murder for the 2010 killing of Avon Beasley.

Moore and Beasley got into an argument on June 12, 2010 in front of 209 N. Rose Street in Baltimore.

Baltimore City police found several witnesses to the shooting who identified Moore.
