Two men convicted of firebombing a Saginaw home will learn their fates Wednesday.

John Granderson and JaMarcus Watkins were convicted last month after prosecutors say they set a house on fire and then shot at six people as they ran from the burning home.

The two men were convicted of firebombing a home on Capehart in Sheridan Park within the City of Saginaw on July 11, 2013.

One girl was shot in the arm, but they all survived. A witness was at the house when it was fire bombed and when the suspects allegedly opened fire. He told the courtroom he saw the men outside in the middle of all the chaos. Police say they found 11 shell casings outside the home.

Police say without the hard work of Detective Matt Gerow and the Saginaw Police Department Detective Bureau, Michigan State Police detectives, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Paul Fehrman and the Prosecutor's Office, Saginaw Police Department Patrol Division, Michigan State Police Troopers and the Saginaw Fire Department this could not have been possible.

Officials are also grateful witnesses came forward to testify in this case saying this case proves that when courageous people come forward to testify, their efforts will not go in vain.

Granderson and Watkins face life behind bars.
