A man who opened fire on Interstate 805 in 2011 has been found guilty.

Enrique Ayon, 26, was convicted of seven charges, including premeditated attempted murder and shooting at an occupied vehicle.

Ayon injured one person and hit two others cars during a string of shootings in October 2011. Ayon managed to escape initially, but was later found by police in Los Angeles. A few months after his arrest, he underwent a mental competency examination.

Investigators believe Ayon acted alone during the shootings.

He faces life in prison when he is sentenced in October.
