A 27-year-old Akron man was convicted Tuesday by a Summit County jury in the shooting death of another young man.

After deliberating for about eight hours, the jury found Darshawn McCormick guilty of murder, felonious assault and having weapons while under disability, which means he was prohibited from having a firearm because of a previous conviction. The murder and felonious assault charges include firearms specifications.

McCormick will be sentenced by Summit County Common Pleas Judge Jason Wells at 1 p.m. June 26.

One of his attorneys said he plans to appeal.

Police say McCormick shot Javanta Virden, 25, in the head Dec. 26, 2016, in an Ericsson Avenue parking lot. Virden was transported to Summa Akron City Hospital, where he later died.

McCormick was charged with Virden’s death in January 2017. At the time, he already was in the Summit County Jail on unrelated charges, including aggravated robbery and felonious assault.

McCormick’s trial was delayed last November after a new attorney was appointed to the case. McCormick was represented by attorneys Kani Hightower and Justin Barnhart and prosecuted by Teri Burnside and Brian Stano.

McCormick’s trial started May 16 and concluded Friday. Jurors deliberated Friday afternoon and Tuesday morning, announcing they had a verdict about noon.
