Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton announced a jury has found a 42-year-old Flint man guilty of armed robbery, assault, and gun charges related to an incident last May.

According to testimony at the trial, Thomas George Manuel, Jr. was at a house in Genesee Township on May 11, 2012 with his sister and another man and woman. The group was smoking crack cocaine when Manuel became angry with the other female and accused her of holding back on sharing the crack cocaine. Testimony revealed that Manuel pulled out a gun and demanded the woman’s cell phone and keys along with a rock of cocaine. Manuel then shot the victim in the abdomen and left the house. The victim that was shot then ran out the back door and called 911 at a neighbor’s house.

The jury convicted Manuel of armed robbery, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, felon in possession of a firearm and felony firearm.

Manuel has previous felony convictions and faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced next month.
