Tyrone Howard was convicted of murder Monday in the October 20, 2015 shooting death of New York City Police Officer Randolph Holder.
Howard was also found guilty Monday on robbery and other charges, and faces life in prison without parole. Howard was on a suspected stolen bicycle when he was confronted by Holder and his partner on a pedestrian overpass in East Harlem. The 32-year-old Howard jumped from the bike, pulled out a handgun loaded with extra ammunition and opened fire. Holder was struck in the head and died.
A Manhattan jury deliberated over four days before deciding Howard knew he was firing on a police officer.
He will be sentenced April 3.
