25-year-old Quarzone Martin was found guilty of second-degree murder, willful injury causing serious injury and going armed with intent for the shooting that killed 26-year-old Andrew Meeks and injured 30-year-old Johnny Moore Jr.

On July 2, police found Meeks and Moore Jr. in a vehicle with gunshot wounds in the parking lot of the Walmart in southwest Cedar Rapids. Police say their vehicle was moving when they were hit with gunfire and crashed into a guardrail. Meeks died as a result of his injuries. Moore Jr. was treated and eventually released from a local hospital.

Martin received a 50-year-prison sentence for the second-degree murder conviction, which he must serve at least 70 percent of. He received smaller concurrent prison sentences for the other charges he was convicted on.

Martin was originally charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, going armed with intent and willful injury causing serious injury.
