A Davidson County jury Tuesday evening convicted a man for his role in the 2009 shooting that injured an intern for the public defender’s office.

Antwain K. Green, 28, was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder and aggravated assault for the Aug. 17, 2009, shooting in University Court. Green spotted Anthony Fizer riding a bike and began firing at him, shooting in the direction of the women, an attorney and an intern, who were interviewing a client for the public defender’s office.

Green hit Fizer several times, while a stray bullet hit the intern, passing through her arm.

Both victims later recovered from their injuries.

The jury found Green guilty on two counts of attempted second-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault. His sentencing date is scheduled for Oct. 13.

Following an 11-month investigation, police also charged Green with the April 2009 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Jazma Jackson at a house on Highland Terrace Drive. Police said after the arrest that Green was on parole at the time of both shootings.

No trial date has yet been set in the Jackson murder case.

Why did he shoot at Fizer? Does he not like bicycles? Why did he shoot Jackson? Why was the Public Defender's office interviewing a client outside in the middle of August or was Fizer riding the bike inside?
