Jury finds man guilty in shooting of Dietrich Perkins

South Bend, Ind. A 29-year-old man has been convicted for his role in a fatal South Bend shooting nearly two years ago.

After nearly eight hours of deliberations, a jury found Freemond Jordan guilty on all three counts, murder, felony murder and attempted robbery, just after midnight.

Jordan was charged in connection with the robbery and homicide of Dietrich Perkins back in November of 2011.

Perkins, a Hammond native, was driving his car at the time of the shooting. His body was later found next to a dumpster on Lathrop and Johnson Streets. Two others were also arrested for their alleged involvement in the crime.

19-year-old Forest Lamar Jr. is charged with attempted murder, while 28-year-old Bryant Hunt pleaded guilty to attempted robbery.

Hunt's sentencing is scheduled for next Thursday.
