On Tuesday, Elijah Ibrahim Parchman was found guilty of Murder and Attempted Murder following a 2019 shooting incident.

The 21-year-old Evansville man was originally arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail early on the morning of April 6, 2019, after one man was shot and killed and another was injured.

“The victims in this case deserved justice after Mr. Parchman’s extremely careless actions led to irreparable damage,” explained Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Nick Hermann. “This was a chaotic scene with many moving parts. Deputy Prosecutor John Bober, Deputy Prosecutor Josh Hutcheson, and numerous Evansville Police Detectives presented an extremely strong case for the jury to consider.”

Parchman was also found guilty of a Firearm Sentencing Enhancement which will add time to his final sentence.

He'll be sentenced in Vanderburgh County Circuit Court on Dec. 14.
