SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A local teenager was convicted Friday for charges related to a shooting incident that occurred on March 5, 2013.

According to the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office, Clyde C. White, 18, of Springfield, was convicted of two counts of unlawful use of a weapon and one count of armed criminal action.

The evidence presented at his trial shows White was at the victims’ home when a verbal argument ensued between White and the victims. White eventually left the home.

The mother of the residents, who was not involved in the argument, woke up to the arguing and drove to where White was to determine what was happening. White retrieved a gun and began shooting her.

The mother attempted to flee from White, but he followed her in a vehicle and continued to fire at her.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office responded to the shooting and found three shell casings and a gun holster in the area White was firing.

There is only one possible sentence for the conviction of unlawful use of a weapon where the defendant discharged a firearm at a car, according to the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office.

Therefore, the first conviction for unlawful use of a weapon carries a mandatory sentence of 15 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections. The conviction for armed criminal action carries a mandatory prison sentence of a minimum of three years with no determined maximum. The conviction for the final count of unlawful use of a weapon for exhibiting the firearm in an angry or threatening manner carries a range of punishment of one year to 4 years imprisonment.

A sentencing hearing is set for White on March 7, 2014 at 1:30 p.m.
