Teen guilty of attempted murder in shootings of 2 girls

A Tampa teenager was found guilty Wednesday of shooting two girls, including one who was left brain damaged, blind and disabled. Demetrius Eddie was 15 when he was charged with shooting Torey Kennedy, 15, and Patricia Shaw, 17, during Christmas 1992 at an outdoor social gathering at Avon and Ohio avenues. Shaw, who still has a bullet in her body, was treated. Kennedy suffered the more serious injuries and was in a coma for some time. On Wednesday, Eddie was convicted of two counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of discharging a firearm from a vehicle. His sentencing is scheduled for later this month. His motive for the shootings was unclear, the prosecutor said.
