A Cuyahoga County jury found Donnell Lindsey guilty in a 2015 drive-by shooting that killed a 3-year-old boy.

In September 2015, Major Howard, 3, was shot in the chest while sitting on a woman's lap inside a car on E. 113th Street.

He was taken to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Brittney Anderson, the mother of Howard, was in the neighborhood visiting a friend at the time of the shooting.

Lindsey was captured in May 2016 by U.S. Marshals in Georgia after months on the run.
