PORTLAND, Ore. – A jury found Brent Luyster guilty of killing three people and wounding a fourth person Friday.

Luyster is guilty of three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and three counts of unlawful possession of a weapon.

Luyster could face a life sentence without the possibility of parole. He will be sentenced on Dec. 4 at 1:30 p.m.

He killed Joseph LaMar, Zachary Thompson and Janell Knight and seriously wounded Breanne Leigh when he shot her in the face on July 16, 2016 in Woodland, Wash.

According to court records, Leigh managed to crawl away from the mobile home where the shooting happened and she got a ride to a nearby convenience store.

She told arriving deputies that Brent Luyster had shot her and three other people earlier that night.

Deputies arrived at the mobile home just before 4 a.m. Saturday to find two men deceased in the driveway, laying side by side at the driveway. A woman was found dead on a couch inside the home.
