2 men convicted of shooting into occupied home

FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Two men were convicted by two separate juries of shooting into a home on Hamilton Street in the city of Flint in the early morning hours of Sept. 29, 2012.

The home was occupied by nine family members, including a married couple in their 80s.

After five days of deliberation, jurors found Kenneth Montgomery Jr., 25, of Flint, guilty of five felonies including assault with intent to murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, shooting into an occupied dwelling, and felony firearm.

He faces a maximum penalty of up to life in prison when he is sentenced.

Co-defendant Quadrell Montgomery, 26, of Flint, was found guilty of assault with intent to commit great bodily harm, being a felon in possession of a firearm and felony firearm.

He faces a maximum penalty of 22 years in prison when he is sentenced.

"Miraculously, no one was killed or injured; this easily could have been a mass execution, " said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton. "We will doggedly bring to justice violent offenders who prey on our most vulnerable and innocent citizens."

The cases were tried by Special Assistant Attorney General Barney R. Whitesman who is assigned to the Genesee County Prosecutor's office pursuant to the Distressed Cities Initiative.

"Barney did an outstanding job with these cases," said Leyton.
